We need your opinion[edit]

Hi, I was thinking that maybe we need your thoughts here, seeming you started the discussion. R2me2

'Open border'[edit]

In August, you tagged Open border as too much like a POV essay. I've done quite a few edits to it and wonder if you would care to revisit and decide whether the tag is still merited. [I can see that it still needs more citations but I guess that it is now no worse than average]. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 15:13, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes, It seems like it is a little bit better to read now. The names of the sections probably motivated me to place this tag. As accepted. DSCrowned(talk) 03:37, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Autoimmune Disease List[edit]

Hi I did not see the comment on the Autoimmune Disease list proposing that it be separated until today. I think it makes sense. I am not a Wikipedia expert, so I would be happy to do the work necessary if you can provide some guidance. I am not sure the best way to communicate - is it posting here (and you on my Talk page?). Thanks! Aaron Abend (talk) 17:39, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for reminding me about this! I would not have known if you did not inform me here. However, it is better to place {{ping|DSCrowned}} before your main message on other talk pages so I am better informed and directed to your question. You do not have to inform me on my talk page if you place the above if you reply. DSCrowned(talk) 07:17, 14 July 2016 (UTC)


User:DSCrowned/Signature has too much code and bling. Imagine if others put stuff like this in talk page:

Example comment. DSCrowned (talk) Please add {{Ping|DSCrowned}} if you reply

That is most unattractive and too much wikitext, even if it is under prescribed limits. Johnuniq (talk) 22:49, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Reverted for now. However, I have seen users like User:I dream of horses put this in their signature when they place it on a talk page:

 I dream of horses  If you reply here, please ping me by adding {{U|I dream of horses}} to your message  (talk to me) (My edits)

It should be acceptable enough for such a notice that does not clutter the page, right? I think a slight edit and reconsideration would do to make it better. DSCrowned(talk) 03:11, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree. If it weren't for that notice, I'd literally forget to check for any replies, particularly in light of the fact that I don't maintain a watchlist (I'm a huggler, AWB'er, and general drive-by editor, so why would I?). @ 04:05, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
@Johnuniq and I dream of horses: You can check out my new test signature draft here at User:DSCrowned/Signature. That signature displays as below if used on a talk page.

DSCrowned(talk) – Please add {{Ping|DSCrowned}} if you reply

It's still a draft though, and it has not become my new signature yet. DSCrowned(talk) 12:15, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Things like this depend on usage. If a small number of signatures are placed on a user talk page, it doesn't really matter what the signature looks like. However, imagine having an extended discussion with someone who always added the excessively long example shown above—I wouldn't do it. Such a signature is not helpful on noticeboards even if used only a couple of times—it might be helpful for someone wanting to draw attention to themselves, but it's not helpful for others (should we all have such a signature?). Your draft is good, although it would be excessive if it were used many times in a section. Johnuniq (talk) 01:07, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
@Johnuniq: Unfortunately, with me automatically putting welcome templates using huggle, I have to point out that you only need to ping somebody if you reply on your own talk page, and not if you reply on mine. I explain this again in my edit notice, and yet there's someone who pings in their message on my talk page right now. I am willing to remove the ping bar if I find it necessary. -- I dream of horses  If you reply here, please ping me by adding {{U|I dream of horses}} to your message  (talk to me) (My edits) @ 01:50, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Help me template[edit]

Just letting you know that I made a change to the {{help me}} template so that it categorizes everywhere, as there were a lot of unread requests in the wrong place. I edited your page to not categorize it, please double check that it behaves correctly with whatever script you are using. Thanks! — Train2104 (talk • contribs) 03:02, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

What level are you?[edit]

I found your name at Category:User js (probably because you posted the corresponding userbox on your user page), in the level-unspecified list of JavaScript programmers.

I was wondering how experienced you are at JavaScript, and whether you might be interested in getting involved with developing user scripts, hobnobbing with other JavaScript programmers, and organizing and improving JavaScript articles and support pages.

We do all of that and more at the JavaScript WikiProject.

Scripts undergoing development, and the state of JavaScript on Wikipedia, are discussed on the talk page.

For an overview of JavaScript coverage on Wikipedia, see Draft:Outline of JavaScript and Index of JavaScript-related articles. For everything on user scripts, see User:The Transhumanist/Outline of scripts.

The WikiProject also organizes every resource it can find about JavaScript out there, such as articles, books, tutorials, etc. See our growing Reference library. If you know of any good ones, please add them.

If you would like to join the JavaScript WikiProject, feel free to add your name to the participants list.

Hope to see you there! The Transhumanist 16:56, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
