December 2011[edit]

Hello! I'm a bot created by another Wikipedia editor. I wanted to let you know that I removed a link that you recently added to the page Cuban Rebel Girls here. I did this because is probably inappropriate for an encyclopedia. We generally try to avoid linking to external audio or video.

We appreciate your help in making Wikipedia better for everyone. If I made a mistake, feel free to undo my edit. If you have any questions, you can ask at the Help desk.

Thank you! --XLinkBot (talk) 11:38, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Operations Packer & Displace[edit]

Thanks for proofing the two articles. Always good to have someone other than the author proof read them. --Conlinp (talk) 07:14, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

My edit on Toronto history since 1945[edit]

(Instructions say to ask a question on this page, but don't say where, so here it is ....) My edit of "Toronto.history.since 1945" (which elaborated on one point enough that I didn't claim it as a minor edit) produced a note that "This page has been semi-protected so that only autoconfirmed users can edit it." The "User access levels" page says "most English Wiki user accounts that are more than four days old and have made at least 10 edits are considered autoconfirmed." My account is well over four days old and I have definitely made more than 10 edits (though most were minor), but my "Toronto.history.since 1945" edit has not shown up. Ergo, what's the problem. TIA, EricClarion (talk) 07:12, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry, you should get the autoconfirmed status soon. Although the precise requirements for autoconfirmed status vary according to circumstances, most English Wiki user accounts that are more than four days old and have made at least 10 edits are considered autoconfirmed. However, users with IPBE editing through the Tor network are subjected to stricter autoconfirmed thresholds: 90 days and 100 edits. Alex discussion 08:12, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
I have allocated a separate section for this query, per use of talk pages (sections), using the 'Add topic' tab.

If you saw an "Edit" link and were taken to a page with an edit box and a "Save page" button, then you are able to edit the page. The software is configured to show all editors that message. -- John of Reading (talk) 11:24, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm going to assume that the answers above have given you enough information, and I've disable the help request. If you need more help, feel free to re-enable it by replacing the {{helpme-helped}} with {{helpme}}, and asking what you still have trouble with. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 11:47, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.
The sum of replies here seems to be that there is nothing I can do: this status is conferred automatically or not at all; the only way out is to apply for IPBE status, which its page says is granted rarely and for exceptional reasons. I'm not asking for anything special, just why a status said to be granted after a short time and 10 edits (which I've made) has not been granted. The page I was trying to edit reloaded with the same message about autoconfirmed status -- and still the old text. Thanks anyway. EricClarion (talk) 03:24, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Are you sure you're not autoconfirmed? It looks to me like you are. Try editing the page now and see what it says. Jackmcbarn (talk) 03:28, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
You are right, thanks, Jack. An edit was accepted. EricClarion (talk) 04:18, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
