Template:Crlf[edit]

Hi. I have undeleted Template talk:Crlf and redirected it to Template talk:Break. I appreciate the help - also in deleting the documentation - but I ask you to give others a little time to finish up, so not to get things confused, please. Thanks. - Nabla (talk) 12:18, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

It was never deleted. If you are going to redirect a template, you should state so in the TfD's outcome; it now states "deleted" when in fact, it is not. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 12:45, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
The *talk* page was deleted, by you, not the template. Yes, you are correct, for a while the closing appeared as "deleted". It was some error that I am not sure how it happened; instead of my intended closing statement it displayed the default message, but it is fixed by now. Again, no big deal, I was simply informing you on why I reverted you deletion, thanking the help, while also asking not too be too fast as it may get unnecessarily confusing. Enjoy - Nabla (talk) 17:19, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
I missed the'talk' part. However, talk pages of redirects are genrally deleted. There are no incoming links. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 17:25, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Telos[edit]

Why did you remove telos from the infobox, are you a cryon? Shall I remove Mondas, it is stated that it is a home planet of the Cybermen elsewhere in the article too. Telos is a massive part of Cybermen history and deserves to be in the infobox. Millions of Cybermen were created on telos so it is a home planet. It was also well sourced. I have not re-instated it as you would likely unreasonably remove it again.

Also, while mentioning that the Cybermen appeared in the five doctors and silver nemesis, in the other mention it is not linked to popularity as my reference is, therefore you should not have deleted it.

Thanks for reading,

Hi, This is best raised on the article's talk page. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 18:02, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
You are using AHistory: An Unauthorised History of the Doctor Who Universe as a reference for the information. The key word being 'unauthorised'. That would seem to indicate it not being a reliable source for Doctor Who information. Tardis.wikia.com might be more appropriate, as they have different standards than Wikipedia. Cheers. --Ebyabe talk - Union of Opposites ‖ 18:06, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
User:Ebyabe I have now mentioned my problem of the page's talk page as you suggested thank you. Looking there I have attempted to allay your concerns about my source and tardis.wikia, while a fantastic site I use often, may not work as a source as I do not believe references from wikis, whether this one or another, are permitted as valid. Thanks.

Doctor Who Series 9 Casting[edit]

It's on her CV so I don't see why it shouldn't be on there. I'm referring to Caroline Boulton by the way. A majority of all the other guest actors on there have their CV (mostly the SAME as Boulton's) as the source cited. Therefore, you must have a problem with all of them too, from Eisabeth Hopper to Robin Soans.

Actors with a CV cited include: - Eisabeth Hopper - Darshan Anderson - Robin Soans - Todd Kramer - Gareth Berliner - Shin-Fei Chen - Alec James - Julie Hendy

--Badgerdog2 (talk) 21:26, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Basically, I do have a problem with all of them; CVs are self-published and have repeatedly proven to be wrong (which can happen when scheduling conflicts arise). Only when the BBC or producers have confirmed the actors' imvolvment should their names be listed here. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 21:31, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes, okay fair enough. But we know some of those people are definitely in it, as Elisabeth was photographed. How do we not they're not in it? I think we should leave it in FOR NOW until proven other wise as this still counts as a source. I understand where you are coming from to be honest, but these are still sources. So unless proven otherwise, i think we should keep them in. Or, if you want to debate this even more (which i dont want to) then just remove them if it will help you sleep better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Badgerdog2 (talkcontribs) 21:37, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Can you bring this up on the article talk page? -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 05:46, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Template:Governors of California[edit]

Could you see that this template looks good to you now? Also, it would be better if each governor (from de Portolà to Burnett) were numbered in order from 1 to 32 through the first four groups; can that be done in this template? Wyeson 17:26, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

The years are too small, see WP:FONTSIZE. Other then that, I see no malformations. You can reset the count using {{hlist-reset}}, but it is a bit of a hack. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 17:50, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Looks good. Wyeson 18:45, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

mathml[edit]

Hi,

thank you for caring about the new MathML rendering option. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Help%3ADisplaying_a_formula&type=revision&diff=671309670&oldid=671307754 It would be expected that this falls back to SVG rendering in MathML disabled browsers. Are you sure that it displayed PNG and not SVG. It would be helpful to analyse this problem in detail to fix the software in case something is broken.

Best --Physikerwelt (talk) 23:21, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

The generic fallback is always PNG (TexVC). As MathML is Firefox-only (Chrome has poor support), it should not be treated as a generic option. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 15:51, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

PS: With regard to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T105320 could you explain what's the intention behind the examples

\frac{\sum\limits^{^N}_{k=1} k^2}{a}
\bigcap_{i=_1}^n E_i
\bigcup_{i=_1}^n E_i

I don't know. I did not add them. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 15:52, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

User appealing a ban from template space[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive273#Missing evaluation. I don't have enough patience to notify everyone who participated in the original discussion, but I know your name as someone who edits template space. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 20:36, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 21:33, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Your last edit to Main page image[edit]

Now there's too much top margin. :( howcheng {chat} 09:08, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

I see (but only for TFA and TFL). I will deal with it when I get home. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 10:53, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
Howcheng, fixed. However, I think we're going about it the wrong way. Instead of one catch-all template, we should just implement the caption on each repective MP project page. This template is too error prone. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 15:40, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
Could you explain the problems you're seeing in a little more detail? I did make a page of test cases. howcheng {chat} 08:13, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
No problems at the moment, but each edit to an MP section (containing div) or template itself could introduce an issie. The extra top margin was caused by a rogue linebreak that happened because of an empty caption paramenter. I prefer to avoid these situations, and the best way I know how is to add the caption to each respective MP image template (or section). -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 10:57, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
