Possible problem[edit]

Hey, Deor. This IP bears watching: [1]. Seems to have veered into overt vandalism, testing our responses, with his most recent edits. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:35, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

@Dirtlawyer1: Why hasn't anyone left the IP talk-page warnings? I can't really take any action in the absence of warnings. I'll try to check on his or her edits occasionally, although the targeted articles aren't really on my usual beat. Deor (talk) 17:45, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Not mine, either, but the IP started "experimenting" with the bio of a former Gators tennis player from the 1960s, so he popped up on my watch list and I started checking on his other edits. I will leave an appropriate warning. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:16, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Sheridan Le Fanu[edit]

Sorry to have done that- you can go to the history and get those page numbers. It would be better for researchers if those two sources were better integrated into the citations list so they could easily locate the original source. --LibraryGurl (talk) 00:36, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for catching problem with Robert Louis Stevenson[edit]

Thank you for catching the problem with Robert Louis Stevenson. I thought I was reverting to the last good version,, that was an edit by you. I have no explanation why it landed as it did. Peaceray (talk) 17:07, 11 January 2016 (UTC)


Hi User:Deor thanks for your edit on my sandbox on the Bighorn River. How did you find my project though?Spidersmilk (talk) 21:39, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

@Spidersmilk: Whenever a page has two sets of of overlapping coordinates in the title position (at the top of the page), it shows up in Category:Pages with malformed coordinate tags, a maintenance category that I monitor. (That's why there was a red error message in the second infobox in your sandbox.) I usually try to stay out of people's sandboxes; but when that category gets too cluttered with them, it becomes harder to identify the mainspace pages that need correction, so I sometimes make a sandbox correction when there is an easy fix.

Help to protect a Sunrisers Hyderabad[edit]

Hello Deor, Nice to leave a message to you, I checked Sunrisers Hyderabad Log and I found that you set Protection to that page Here, Now that page needs protection, Some IP Users creates 'vandalism'. I had already request here, but that was declined. Please help me to Protect/Semi-protect the Sunrisers Hyderabad page. Thanking You --Nivas88 (talk) 17:00, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

@Nivas88: I've looked at the recent edits to the article, and I don't really see enough vandalistic activity to justify semi-protection at this time. Much of the IP editing seems to consist of good-faith (though possibly misguided) attempts to improve the article. If the article becomes a target for sustained vandalism, please leave another message here, and I'll take a fresh look at the situation. Deor (talk) 18:01, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Deor Thanks for your suggestion, But few IP's change some sections regularly like Former Players. --Nivas88 (talk) 18:09, 14 January 2016 (UTC) I'll Definitely inform you again --Nivas88 (talk) 18:12, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Block templates must be substituted[edit]

It looks like the block notice you left on User talk:Azeemtelecome was left unsubstituted and it was not signed. Eyesnore 15:48, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, Eyesnore. I don't block users all that often, and sometimes I forget how to do it properly. Deor (talk) 15:54, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
