Your comments about George Joye spellings[edit]

Hi, GJ1535. I read the comment you left at the comment you left at Iohannes Animosus's talk page. You are clearly correct that the changes should not have been made but the tone of the comment is too harsh. You can always make a valid point without being confrontational or condescending even if you are upset about an edit. Remember to always assume good faith and be civil. Every editor makes such mistakes at one time or another and gently correcting them helps keep editors from leaving the project. Jason Quinn (talk) 23:54, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Jason. Thanks for your note. You are right, I was carried away in my frustration. It is very frustrating though that people correct words without reading them in context. In the meantime I have solved (hopefully) the problem with inserting sic notice tags. GJ1535 (talk) 07:55, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Since several [sic] comments may be necessary to draw misguided correcters to the need NOT to correct deliberate errors, what about creating a global sic token? Like:
  • {{cleanup}}
  • {{coord missing|Togo}}
  • {{global-sic}}
This global sic might appear as a coloured bar two or three lines deep at the top of the screen with suitable words. Recently, a coloured bar has started to appear for articles about people who are still living, as a warning that careless changes can be defamatory. (You cannot defame the non-living!)
Does anyone know who might be able to program this global sic?
