Hello Gif-unrelated: Thanks for converting the template into an infobox. Have a great day! 1500BullLea (talk) 18:28, 30 October 2012 (UTC)


Dear Gif-unrelated: Thank you for approving my article on Coldstream Research Campus. I added the infobox, as you suggested. Have a great day, and thanks for making the page official! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1500BullLea (talkcontribs) 17:22, 30 October 2012 (UTC)



Hello Gif-unrelated: I am confused by your answer to my query about Coldstream Research Campus, which you rejected. I have nothing to do with "RazorThreat," which you quoted in your response. I am with Coldstream Research Campus, a part of the University of Kentucky. I have cited many reputable sources, including the University of Kentucky, the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper, etc. And I really don't think I am using "peacock" language. Can you please review Coldstream Research Campus to verify if in fact you have confused it with RazorThreat? Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1500BullLea (talkcontribs) 17:19, 29 October 2012 (UTC)


Would you assist me with the changes that need to be made to the article about RazorThreat. I tried to model similar existing articles but I am unclear as to what needs to be changed. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Frank Granite (talk) 16:09, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Basically, the tone of your article is like that of an advertisement. You should cut down on peacock words. Some examples which are from your own submission are "RazorThreat’s Vision™ integrates seamlessly with...". Also, your submission does not contain any reliable source which is required to establish the notability of the organisation. So, basically you have to add some references to show that the organisation is notable and change the tone of your article. Gif-unrelated talk! 17:46, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter[edit]

Hey Gif-unrelated. We've just rolled out a new version of the VisualEditor :). Changes and patches include:

  • Newly added templates now list their available parameters if TemplateData is available;
  • The load for the VisualEditor on apages is now 4 KiB, down from 119 KiB;
  • Feedback dialog is no longer chased off the screen by typing (bug 50538)
  • Fixed the Monobook issues around z-indexes (bug 50241)
  • Undoing an image resize doesn't make everything look bad
  • In the image dialog, "Caption content" is now just "Caption"
  • Tweaked tooltip references to VisualEditor to instead talk about "source mode"

Those are the big ones; more coming at the end of this week or early next week :). It's a short list, but the load issue took up a lot of time, as did TemplateData, and are both pretty big changes. If you've got any questions, drop them on my talkpage. Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 01:26, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter[edit]

Hey Gif-unrelated! We've just deployed some fixes to the VisualEditor. These include:

  • "Edit" will load the latest version, not the version you're looking at (bug 49943)
  • "Edit" will load the latest version, not the version you edited last time if this is your second edit (bug 50441)
  • VE edit section links will load the latest, not original, version in diff view preview (bug 50925)
  • <big><big>Foo</big></big> and similar repeated tags will not get corrupted any more (bug 49755)

In the meantime, testing is proceeding well, and hopefully we can get some more fixes out over the next couple of days. If you're interested in helping out, we have a set of open tasks we'd really appreciate your assistance with :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 08:03, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

VE newsletter[edit]

Hey Gif-unrelated

We just deployed another VisualEditor release; bugs fixed include:

  • Firefox 13/14 has been temporarily blacklisted, to avoid the insertion of broken links [[./that look like this]] (50720)
  • Changing a reference in a template should no longer produce the bright red "you don't have a references block!" error (bugzilla:50423)
  • Notices are now shown if you're editing a protected or semi-protected page (bugzilla:50415)
  • The template inspector will no longer invite you to insert parameters that are already being used (50715)
  • Same as above, but with aliases (50717)
  • Parameter names in the template dialogue now word-wrap (50800)
  • The link inspector will not show in the top left if you hit the return key while opening it (49941)
  • Hitting return twice in the link editor will no longer introduce a new line that overwrites the link (51075)
  • Oddly-named categories no longer cause corruption (50702)
  • The toolbar no longer occasionally covers the cursor (48787)
  • Changing the formatting of text no longer occasionally scrolls you upwards (50792)

Not specific bugs, but other things; cacheing is now improved, so people should stop seeing temporary breaking when the VisualEditor updates, and RTL support has received some patches. I hope this newsletter is helpful to people; I'll send out another one with the next deployment :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 10:13, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

VE newsletter[edit]

Hey Gif-unrelated! Another set of patches :). Today we have:

  • Required template parameters are now automatically added to new templates (50747)
  • Templates with piped links now display correctly when you alter them (50801)
  • If your edit token expires, you're now informed of it (50424).
    You still won't be able to save - that's due to be fixed on Monday :).

More on Monday, I suspect. Hope you have a good weekend :). I should also have some news about the IP launch pretty soon. Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 13:21, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

(if you're seeing this and aren't the newsletter recipient - please do sign up here)

VE newsletter[edit]

Hey Gif-unrelated; hope you had a decent weekend :). We've got a pile of patches, some of which went out on Monday, some yesterday:

  • If you insert wikitext such as links or section headers, you get a notice in the top right corner (over the save button). It doesn't go away until click, though once dismissed you don't get another one that edit. (49820)
  • If your edit token expires, VE fetches a new one for you so you can save. (50424)
  • If the page is empty of content but does have something non-content (like a category or an HTML comment), VE no longer crashes on load - (50289)
  • sub tags are no longer removed ((49873)
  • If you type at the end of links, they now extend
  • Templates now only take a single click to insert
  • Clear annotations clears links (50461)
  • The link inspector stays open when you click to another item (50895)
  • Typing after multi-byte characters no longer creats pawn icons (51140)
  • Resizing thumbnails that have a default size set now works (50645)
  • References made by tag:ref now display properly (bugzilla:50978)
  • The VE is integrated with the spam blacklist (50826)
  • Feedbacl link goes to the right language (bugzilla:47730)

There are a lot more improvements coming, but that's it for Monday and Tuesday. Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 08:23, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
