Jupiter: in the infobox image caption[edit]

It put it in the same place it would have been in Template:Infobox using "above". I.e., below the caption, and above the rest of the box's content. The Transhumanist 21:58, 8 February 2017 (UTC)]]

I still don't understand why your link belongs as part of the {{Infobox planet}} caption parameter, especially when you intend on adding it to the "See also" section, where I think such a link could arguably belong (although not in first position for such a new and singly edited article). Also, you placed your messages at the top of my page, which isn't where they should go. Dhtwiki (talk) 12:30, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Portal:Contents/Outlines[edit]

Each outline is intended to serve as a table of contents for the Wikipedia-wide coverage of the subject in its title. The Transhumanist 22:24, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Your particular form of outline is new to me. I'm used to navboxes and portal templates. In any case, I don't see anything that talks of the need for the sort of duplication you seem to be attempting, or of placing immature articles so prominently. Dhtwiki (talk) 12:40, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

dead link[edit]

Why did you remove the "dead link" template from [1] at Lyndon B. Johnson? Kendall-K1 (talk) 01:42, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

I had a new, working URL but forgot to replace the old, dead link when I reworked the citation. I've just put in the new link. It should work now. Dhtwiki (talk) 02:07, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Kendall-K1 (talk) 04:08, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Guild of Copy Editors February 2017 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to the February 2017 GOCE newsletter. The Guild has been busy since the last time your coordinators sent out a newsletter!

December blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 11 through 17 December; the themes were Requests and eliminating the November 2015 backlog. Of the 14 editors who signed up, nine editors completed 29 articles. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all who took part.

January drive: The January drive was a great success. We set out to remove December 2015 and January and February 2016 from our backlog (195 articles), and by 22 January we had cleared those and had to add a third month (March 2016). At the end of the month we had almost cleared out that last month as well, for a total of 180 old articles removed from the backlog! We reduced our overall backlog by 337 articles, to a low of 1,465 articles, our second-lowest month-end total ever. We also handled all of the remaining requests from December 2016. Officially, 19 editors recorded 337 copy edits (over 679,000 words).

February blitz: The one-week February blitz, focusing on the remaining March 2016 backlog and January 2017 requests, ran from 12 to 18 February. Seven editors reduced the total in those two backlog segments from 32 to 10 articles, leaving us in good shape going in to the March drive.

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: In December, coordinators for the first half of 2017 were elected. Jonesey95 stepped aside as lead coordinator, remaining as coordinator and allowing Miniapolis to be the lead, and Tdslk and Corinne returned as coordinators. Thanks to all who participated!

Speaking of coordinators, congratulations to Jonesey95 on their well-deserved induction into the Guild of Copy Editors Hall of Fame. The plaque reads: "For dedicated service as lead coordinator (2014, 1 July – 31 December 2015 and all of 2016) and coordinator (1 January – 30 June 2015 and 1 January – 30 June 2017); exceptional template-creation work (considerably streamlining project administration), and their emphasis on keeping the GOCE a drama-free zone."

Housekeeping note: We do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your watchlist.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Miniapolis, Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdslk.

To discontinue receiving GOCE newsletters, please remove your name from our mailing list.

Latur[edit]

Hello,
Would you please look up a recent change on the article of Latur? I am not sure if it is a good change or not, i mean, not sure if it should be kept, or if your previous version should be restored.
Kindly let me know what to do, as I think I should it. Most of my edits are on talkpages, and very few on mainspace :-/
Thanks. Face-smile.svgusernamekiran (talk) 13:39, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

It looks like a random rearrangement of infobox parameters—away from how they're presented at template documentation, which is the order I try to keep—with the addition of the names of two MLAs, which I would want to keep. I would revert the edit to get the parameters back in order and then add back the two MLAs. Dhtwiki (talk) 17:20, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It's not random. This is actually an intentional feature of the beta Visual Editor. It rearranges parameters based on the order defined in the TemplateData block in the template's documentation (in this case, {{Infobox settlement}}). See T133874, where this was filed as a bug and declined. To prevent this from happening when editors use VE to edit articles, you have to modify the TemplateData section of the template's documentation to match the order that you want. But be forewarned: I have been verbally abused for attempting to modify the poorly documented TemplateData section, which is actually programming code, even though it is stored in the template's documentation. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:44, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. Dhtwiki (talk) 18:02, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
@Jonesey95 and Dhtwiki: hi,
currently i contribute to wikipedia totally based on my watchlist. I want to copyedit, and improve the "unconstructive" changes on wikipedia. Is there any tool/bot/way to find unconstructive changes (dont have to be recent), or to find articles needing copyediting? I have already got permission granted for STiki, and I have barely used twinkle. But as of this moment, my laptops and desktop are down for a few days. I will get them working soon. Can you suggest me a method that I can use to find articles from computer?
PS: kindly ping me if you communicate with me. —usernamekiran (talk) 23:58, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Cromwell[edit]

Dear Dhtwiki, However "trivial" the remark may seem to you, I think it shows well enough how cynical Cromwell was about popularity. As a political leader, he was fully aware that someday admirers’ cheers might turn into shouts of hatred. Regards, --ORANSIGLOT (talk) 10:08, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

I remember that you included a long quotation, which I thought was certainly WP:UNDUE for the subject at hand. I suspect that most anyone who's been an object of adulation might realize that that just makes them more likely to be hated later. There's always an appeal to the article talk page. My view on the matter doesn't necessarily represent consensus. Dhtwiki (talk) 19:38, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Bihar[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Indian cities#Transport. Also, spacing is not done by me, its based on autoformat tool.--Vin09(talk) 14:30, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

@Vin09: I see your point on the use of "Transport", but why did you choose to remove "article" from the template, when that is preferred, and why did you insert spaces between title and markup, which isn't done for the rest of the article, and where such spaces are, again, apt to be remove by a bot (although I'd probably have left it alone if it were the consistent article style)? Dhtwiki (talk) 21:39, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Article? I didn't get you. I've a script in my editing box which is a jsp script to correct errors automatically accepted by wiki. It does autocorrection, I've not done any manual editing. If there is any mistake reflecting in the view, I'll check it. Cheers!--Vin09(talk) 03:40, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
I got it, you were referring to Main article to Main right? It was also done by the script itself. Template:Main article was redirected to Template:Main. Both are correct. But still that's not done by me wanted including spaces. I just run the script it automatically checks ans corrects errors and update per present wiki usage.--Vin09(talk) 03:56, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
(arbitrary break)[edit]

@Dhtwiki: I have added some city in list of Bihar why remove those city name from the list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Monu4u1987 (talkcontribs) 10:19, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

@Monu4u1987: As I said in my edit summary, I reverted because a) your edits left the table out of alignment, and b) the population figures you gave for the two cities were not even close to those given by the reference used for the table (your figure for Siwan = 3,330,464, for Gopalganj = 2,562,012, versus 135,066 and 67,339, respectively, from the reference). Can you explain why your figures are at such a variance? Dhtwiki (talk) 21:43, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Still Breathing[edit]

Hey, I reverted your edit at Still Breathing because of a two reasons. Elaborating this more just in case you don't understand.

1) The source refers to the hot adult contemporary chart, which is NOT the same as the adult contemporary chart; they are two different charts. Note that the former is 40 positions and the latter is 30 positions, and are also differentiated by the fact that the former has the word "hot" in it, while the latter does not. 2) This has already be cited on the chart above it, which is Adult Top 40. The chart should be cited only once at that section.

Hope this clears up any confusion as to why I reverted your edit. If you have still have anymore queries, reply below. Thanks. Daerl (talk) 07:09, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Chev Big Block edit[edit]

Hello! I noticed that on the Chevrolet Big-Block engine page you had added back the "===" so as to make the "L18 Applications" appear in the contents. Please know that I removed them as there are no other RPO code applications that appear in the contents. For example L21, L88 etc... I was wondering - should we have all the RPO code applications in the contents? This would be difficult as the Mark I through Generation VI are organized by engine displacement. Thank you, Toneron2 (talk) 04:00, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

I restored the title because otherwise it was lost in the following paragraph and because it didn't hurt to break up the text at that point. I see that it's inconsistent with the previous sections, so it should be changed. Dhtwiki (talk) 04:11, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Tower of Terror[edit]

Source is entitled tallest "buildings", don't understand changing to "attraction".

In regards to the Tower of Terror edit. For several years (long before Mission Breakout was announced) the lead-in said "tallest attraction at the resort". It was only earlier this year that I actually changed it to "building" (since it was closed for a while). But since the ride is now an attraction again, I switched it back to what it read originally, as I thought it was applicable, and there was evidently never an issue with it before. I'm fine with it either way, but I wanted to explain my reasoning. Wikicontributor12 (talk) 03:58, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for explaining. I thought that "attraction" left open the possibility that there might be taller non-attraction structures, and that "building" made for a stronger statement in that regard. Dhtwiki (talk) 12:12, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
