Hi, I tracked down your unsigned message to this page

I think the article was actually title backwater fever, but in any case, wikipedia is an encyclopedia - you should put simple definitions into wikitionary.

If I can be of help in future, let me know - and welcome to Wikipedia jimfbleak 04:11, 7 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for backing me up in the discussion on copyright at I appreciate it. --Natezomby 18:41, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Operation Dipscam article[edit]

  • A cleanup tag was added to the article today. FrankTownend, you initiated this article last month with a press release: if you care about its future, it would be a good idea to start making it encyclopedic. –Æ. 21:50, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
  • UPDATE: The article has been tagged for speedy deletion (see notice at top of article page) - now is the time to add {{hangon}} to it & get to work to make it worth keeping! –Æ. 04:33, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 17:12, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
