Welcome to WikiProject Beer
Welcome! have a beer

Hello Gzuufy! welcome to WikiProject Beer! We are a group of editors who work together to better organize information in articles related to beer.

The goals of WikiProject Beer:

  • Consensus about the organization of beer and brewery related articles.
  • Coordination of editing on beer, brewery, and pub related articles.
  • Categorization of beer, brewery, and pub articles.
  • Creation, expansion, and maintenance of beer, brewery, and pub articles.
  • To help maintain the Beer portal.

What you can do right now:

  • You may also want to add {{User WikiProject Beer}} to your userpage to show others your interest in beer related articles.
  • If you haven't done so already, please consider adding your name to the list of participants.
  • You may even want to add these pages to your watchlist.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or type {{helpme}} on this page and someone will come along. Once again, welcome to the project!

Rollback needed on Citation

{{adminhelp}} Dear Administrator, it appears the rollback function is required on the page Citation to the version of "Revision as of 13:09, 18 June 2010" by Rich Farmbrough due to vandalism. Gzuufy (talk) 17:27, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

 Done, but for future reference this doesn't require an administrator (as I am not). Ks0stm If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. 17:38, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

ref name=

I am currently on dialup so I will keep this short. If I recall correctly ref name= is for the purpose of assigning a short name to a reference so the reference can be used a number of times throughout the text. Regards, Darrell_Greenwood (talk) 02:48, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Found it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(footnotes)#Reference_name_.28naming_a_ref_tag_so_it_can_be_used_more_than_once.29 Darrell_Greenwood (talk) 02:52, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you Darrell. I've lightly skimmed that page, but there are some possible contradictions I haven't yet wrapped my mind around. Let me see if I understand your message correctly. Just the <ref name="unique identifier" /> can be used for multiple citations to the same page number, thus reducing visible code on the editing page. If that's what you're saying, that's a great idea, and I will implement it if I can get it to work. I particularly like the way SilkTork does citations over on Brewing, as they go directly to the book page, allowing one to read the cited text with just a couple of clicks. Gzuufy (talk) 18:10, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Correct. There was a typo with the Gänzle citation which I've fixed. Darrell_Greenwood (talk) 00:40, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Pending changes/Straw poll on interim usage

Hi. As you recently commented in the straw poll regarding the ongoing usage and trial of Pending changes, this is to notify you that there is an interim straw poll with regard to keeping the tool switched on or switching it off while improvements are worked on and due for release on November 9, 2010. This new poll is only in regard to this issue and sets no precedent for any future usage. Your input on this issue is greatly appreciated. Off2riorob (talk) 23:35, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

I guess I don't understand the purpose of a "poll" if the tool is "due for release" regardless of poll results. Gzuufy (talk) 18:02, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
