Wrong. Please don't revert constructive edits.

You are wrong about John Gutfreund. Please read the actual article. The quote contains "fucking." Removing it is bowdlerizing reality.

“No,” he said, “I think we can agree about this: Your fucking book destroyed my career, and it made yours.”

AWB: Slow down

Please slow down with your AWB edits. The tool is not supposed to be used beyond a few edits a minute. Ten edits a minute is inappropriate using AWB. either way (talk) 18:33, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

I check every edit throughly before I save it. However, I'll try to slow down a little bit, though I don't see the point. -download | sign! 18:36, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
It's not just about checking them, it's also about flooding the recent changes feed. High rate edits are done with bots usually to stop them from displaying in the default recent changes feeds. either way (talk) 18:46, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Alright; point understood. Best, -download | sign! 18:48, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Without checking your contributions...if you are going to go through a lot (several hundred/thousand) of similar edits w/ AWB, you may wish to consider getting a bot approved. Bot edits don't show up in recent changes so they can be done as fast as you like. You would still be able to use AWB - and it could even auto-save the edits for you if you wanted. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 10:22, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I will create a bot account, but do you think it would be safe to let it autosave? For example, see the false positive I made here: [1] -download | sign! 18:10, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, do slow down please. This edit[2] looks like it was done by a bot, since a live person reading the passage would not have changed a direct quote, and a live person would have noticed that it's ok for 4,494 "years" to "pass away". Making those years "die" is rather odd. Priyanath talk 17:41, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Just as a minor point of correction ... actually the only kinds of talk page messages that editors cannot remove from their own talk pages (as per WP:BLANKING) are declined unblock requests (but only while blocks are still in effect), confirmed sockpuppet notices, or IP header templates (for unregistered editors), with these exceptions only existing in order to keep a user from potentially gaming the system. — Kralizec!

AWB

How the fuck do I use this? Seems like the manual was written out for someone who already knows how to use the program. I'm completely lost and can't do anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TravisAF (talk) 02:54, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Alright, I'll explain it step-by-step. First, in the "Make list" section, create a list of articles you want to process. In the options section, edit the settings for skipping and editing articles. After you've set your settings, click Start and it will start processing. Then, you will have the option of editing the article, and pressing "Ignore" or "Save". -download | sign! 02:56, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Maybe it's just me, but this program seems painfully slow in fixing typos. Huggle feels like light-speed compared to this. Am I doing something wrong? You seem to have such ridiculous success. 03:09, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, it depends on the articles you choose. If you made your list of articles from, for example, Category:All articles needing copy edit, then there would be more articles with typos in them. -download | sign! 03:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

So I've ignored 628 pages and made 25 edits. How can I possibly hope to get anywhere near as many edits as you when I'm going that slow? :( TravisAF (talk) 03:26, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

That is very slow. About one-third of all the articles in my list have typos that I fix. However, I'm doing the exact same thing, usually making a list from Category:All articles needing copy edit and making general fixes and typo fixes. -download | sign! 03:29, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Could you clarify how exactly you go about making your list from that category? I must be doing something wrong. TravisAF (talk) 03:33, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

In the "Source" drop-down menu, choose "Category". Then, in the blank below, enter "All articles needing copy edit". Then click make list. You should now have a list of all the articles in the category. Alternatively, you could choose "Google search" or "Wiki search (text)". Then, in the field below you could enter any commonly mispelled word to find the typos. You would then have a list of articles with that typo. I use WP:List of common misspellings for that. Hope that helps! -download | sign! 19:48, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

What all jazz under Options/More/Disambig/etc. do you enable or disable? TravisAF (talk) 22:21, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

You could choose to enable that depending on your purpose. You don't really need the disambiguation options, so leave that alone. In options, you could choose whether you want to auto-tag pages with tags such as {{stub}} and toggle other options. To do typo fixing, choose "Enable RegEx TypoFix". In the skip options, choose when to skip an article. For example, I choose the options "edit blocked by spam filter", "no changes are made", "only minor genfixes", and "page is redirect". -download | sign! 22:30, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Science debate forums

I have removed your advertisement from your navigation bar. You were already told that links to that site were against the rules, and that it is a violation of our rules about what wikipedia is not, in this case, wikipedia is not free ad space.— dαlus Contribs 09:25, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

I was under the impression that ads are allowed in the user space minimally. It also seems like WP:SOAP applies to articles. Confirmation please? -download | sign! 21:04, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
They are not, you are likely thinking of the wikipedia ads, which is actually a template that cycles images pertaining to wikipedia. Please reade WP:UP#NOT, or more specifically, the following lines:
  • Advertising or promotion of a business or organization unrelated to Wikipedia (such as purely commercial sites or referral links)
  • Extensive self-promotional material that is unrelated to your activities as a Wikipedian
  • Other non-encyclopedic related material

Those are the relevant lines. You may include a link to your personal website, but not to forums.— dαlus Contribs 21:24, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

questions

Hi Download! Long time no see, huh? I need some of your help again, no surpise. SoleteRayosÑajo.gif I created a new sub page for my userboxes, and was wondering if you could add that to my main menu with an image above it. If you could do that, that would be great! Also, I would like to change my signature a bit. As you can see, my singature has a part on the right that says, talk to me!, and redirects you to my talk page. I would like to change my signature so that the link to my talk page is when you click on the, 5525, of my Soccer5525 signature. So basically, I would like the Soccer part to redirect you to my user page, and the 5525 part to redirect you to my talk page. Do you get that? I would really appreicate if you could do these two little things for me. I would do them myself, but I'm really quite busy today with my adoption program and other tasks in my real life. Many thanks, ----♥Soccer5525♥Talk To Me! 15:55, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Lower case in French

Hi, please do not 'fix' the use of lower case for proper nouns in French languages passages. I reverted two changes that appeared on my watch list [4] [5]. In French capitals are not always used for proper nouns, as they are in English. Thanks. Paul B (talk) 09:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Mis-corrections to Deleuze and Guattari articles.

Hi - you appear to have mis-corrected the spelling of literature in the references for the French-language spelling of the word. It should appear in the original French, because it's a French book that's being cited. Thanks. DionysosProteus (talk) 14:47, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

User on the Chinese Wikipedia?

Hi, its your friednly adoptee here. I just noticed while having another look at your userpage that you edit on the Chinese Wikipedia. Thats seems interesting. I only know a small ammount of Mandarin from lessions at Perth High. IU think I would like editing there. Though none of the main page on the Chinese one makes much sense to me. Ross Rhodes (T C) Sign! 19:19, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

I only know a small amount of Mandarin as well, so I barely understand anything. (I actually haven't made one significant edit.) However, you should probably reserve an account there if you ever want to edit by going to Special:CreateAccount. -download | sign! 19:24, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Interlake Chess team official Website

Hey download, The Interlake chess team created a official website at interlakechess.blogspot.com. I was going to put it on the links, but due to the possible unreliability of the domain, it may be thought of as a fan site and it may be removed. I put it on as of right now, but scince I don't exactly know all of the WP:rules, it would be great if you could tell me if the external link is okay. thx, Assasin Joe talk 14:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi there

Hello, I've made a lot of constructive edits and improvements to the Michelle Marsh page, and you have just gone and deleted all of them. These edits were made in good faith, are constructive, and took a lot of research and work on my part. They add a great deal of substance and solidity to the page, and they also make sure that everything is well referenced. Can you explain why you've chosen to undo all my work? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.46.130.97 (talk) 23:47, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
