space surveillance redirect

Hi. You made the red link space surveillance into a redirect to spy satellite. Looking at all the links to it we are all using it in a different meaning. It's not surveillance from space, it's surveillance of space. Both the Russian centre for outer space monitoring (SKKP) (to be written) and the American Air Force Space Surveillance System and United States Space Surveillance Network use this to describe the monitoring of satellites. I think your redirect is misleading and I think we should change it. Secretlondon (talk) 22:52, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

I recommend making it into a disambiguation page linking to the different possible meanings. Salvidrim! 23:17, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
I've made it into a stub. Secretlondon (talk) 00:13, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Matt May does in fact run Bloomington

Sorry I edited your page... I thought my revision would let the students of IU know who in fact runs their city. I am new to wikipedia and I thought it would be helpful. Maybe next time... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:52, 3 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi Download,

I notice that you used STiki for a bit (amassing a lot of edits in 3 days) and then went back to using Huggle. Can I ask why? I'm not trying to pressurise you into using STiki or anything... I'm just wondering if it shows a way in which STiki could be improved.

Hey Yaris, it's not anything with STiki at all. :) These days I do a lot of edits with AWB and just took a break from it to do some vandalism reverting yesterday with Huggle. Didn't cross my mind to use STiki - I guess I'll start using it again! -download ׀ talk 20:56, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
OK. Cool. I don't know if you have the latest version of STiki, but it might be worth getting. It has a number of improvements including good-faith revert and persistent user settings. Check out Wikipedia:STiki#Download. Yaris678 (talk) 07:36, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
Oh, wow. Didn't realize that I was still using a terribly outdated version. Thanks for the notice! -download ׀ talk 22:53, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

  • My mistake on that one.  :) Sorry about that. -download ׀ talk 21:23, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
    • Understandable mistake, I've made a few errors on Huggle myself. Mark Arsten (talk) 21:25, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
