We need your help testing latest huggle[edit]


I am sending you this message because you listed yourself on meta:Huggle/Members as a beta tester. We desperately need attention of testers, because since we resolved all release blockers, we are ready to release first official version of huggle 3! Before that happens, it would be nice if you could test it so that we can make sure there are no issues with it. You can download it packaged for your operating system (see Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3_Beta) or you can of course build it yourself, see for that. Don't forget to use always latest version, there is no auto-update message for beta versions!

Should you find any issue, please report it to wikimedia bugzilla, that is a central place for huggle bugs, where we look at them. That is i mportant, if you find a bug and won't report it, we can't fix it. Thank you for your work on this, if you have any questions, please send me a message on my talk page, I won't be looking for responses here. Thanks, Petrb (talk) 15:10, 10 April 2014 (UTC)


You seem to be editing fine; is this still impacting you? Kuru (talk) 23:06, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Not anymore. Dan653 (talk) 23:22, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay; if it pops back up again, just uncomment the request above and we'll get it fixed for you. Sorry for the confusion. Kuru (talk) 23:24, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

New huggle 3.1 is going to be released soon[edit]

Hi Dan653, we are to release a new major version of huggle, but we did receive almost no feedback from our beta testing team, which you are a part of (see It would be of a great help if you could download it (if you have windows, all you need to do is getting and putting it to a folder where you have installed huggle) and test it. You can always get a help with making it @ #huggle connect!

Major changes:

  • Multisite support - you can now log in to unlimited number of wikis in 1 huggle session and get a huge queue of all edits made to these wikis. This is good for smaller projects which gets overlooked often.
  • Ranged diffs - you can select multiple revisions and get a huge diff that display all changes done to them.
  • Fixes of most of bug reports we had so far

In case you found a bug, please report it to bugzilla: thank you! Petrb (talk) 10:08, 30 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi there Dan653, thanks for catching that. I'm just trying to figure out how to do the headers accurately, a little trial and error. — Preceding unsigned comment added by W.johnson131 (talkcontribs) 18:59, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Edits to Orange County Museum of Art[edit]

Hi there Dan653,

My overall edits are not tests. I am actually trying to contribute to the Orange County Museum of Art page with a fuller listing of Exhibitions and Programs offered by the institution. Is there a particular reason why adding sections for "Collection History" and "Programs" are not seen as contributions when I am giving references for the information?

Thanks for your help, w.johnson131 — Preceding unsigned comment added by W.johnson131 (talkcontribs) 19:05, 30 October 2014 (UTC)


Again, why are my edits considered "vandalism" of the OCMA site when I am providing updated information?W.johnson131 (talk) 23:11, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

False positive, I restored your work back. Dan653 (talk) 23:25, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

In response[edit]

Dan, your quite right and I suppose it's imprudent to expect everyone to appreciate my sense of humor as I much as I do. But in all seriousness having a counterpoint in that part section of the article is a lot like having someone come on and argue why the sky isn't blue. The BBC does this quite often, having a counterpoint to something that is well established as being true. Don't get me wrong, I love the BBC dearly and on the whole have a deep respect for them as an news organization but the world is not ambiguous and there are some things that simply are. If Hagelin's study seems far afield and debatable I would urge you to read the report published in Yale's Journal of Conflict Resolution. Also the section looks as if Park himself wrote it. It even uses the very dubiously ethical maneuver of reinforcing his own opinion before he states it by the selective use of the fact that the review board was composed entirely of TM practitioners. This will of course predispose one who reads it to the idea that the study was indeed an exercise in data manipulation. Which, ironically is actually what that piece of the article is doing, and not very well I might add. A constructive, as you say, balance to that might be stating that Hagelins group cooperated with the D.C. Police Department, the F.B.I. and criminologists from several major universities. So yes, the board may have been TM members, but it's not as if they were locked away in a room cherry picking the data with no independent oversight or review. I believe I have stated my position quite clearly. Once again I apologize for my antics, but if they lead to a better article I will be quite happy. Now if you'll excuse me, it's getting quite late and I've a long string of rejection letters sift through along with a deadline looming over on the horizon. Your watchdoggishness(if that's even a real word) is quite commendable. We need more people like you in this vacuumed cesspit the world seeming to being careening into.

Huggle message[edit]

Hey Dan653! You are receiving this message because you are subscribed at

I have recently launched a new downloads for beta testers that contains nightly builds of huggle, eg. versions that are built every day from our master branch and contains latest huggle. These builds are currently provided only for Windows and Ubuntu. You can find them here:

Please keep in mind that these don't have any automatic updates and if you download and start using nightly build, you will need to update it yourself! So don't get yourself to running old version, it's possible to install both stable and nightly huggle, which is what I suggest.

Keep the bug reports coming to phabricator: Many thanks! Petrb (talk) 09:55, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

line about "Wags" in article about Americans for Prosperity[edit]

I have seen the phrase I had added on images on Twitter, but finding those again will take a lot of time. After some searching with Yahoo the New Yorker magazine provided a cartoon by Barbara Smaller: [1] Daily Cartoon: Wednesday, April 2nd (2014) By Barbara Smaller The phrase she used was "AMERICANS for the perpetuation of the Koch Brothers' PROSPERITY" (talk) 03:32, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Robert Preston Jewish[edit]

Robert Preston himself makes frequent reference to his religious background in books, radio, TV, and online. It is extremely disingeous for individuals on wikipedia to remove background information on such a highly influential media commentator with deep and established links to various international Jewish communities, internatioanl finance, and the British labour party.

A simple Google search brings this up on the first page:

Now why do you, PhilFrenzy, and various other related individuals keep removing basic information on UK based journalists, media personalities, and politicians? - Enquiring minds would suggest that you are censoring and sanatising information on behalf of someone. Care to inform the rest of us who you are working for?
