Age of people[edit]

Hi, instead of manually adding a person's age into the infobox (which will require manual updates each year--a maintenance hassle) -- you can use a template instead: {{birth date and age}}. See the Template talk:birth date and age for instructions on how to use the template. olderwiser 20:04, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Primaries[edit]

You changed the titles in Mark Dayton from DFL Primary to Democratic Primary. Aren't those primaries actually to determine the DFL candidate? What's your reasoning for changing them?--Appraiser 17:47, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Regarding "Exploratory Committees"[edit]

You're invited to comment at Template talk:United States presidential election, 2008 navigation, on this proposal:

Proposed Deletion of category "Exploratory" and "Declared" for individuals filing with FEC.

And please note this argument on the same talk page. Exploratory equals Candidate.

Best regards, -- Yellowdesk 07:24, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Actor Infoboxes[edit]

I noticed that you recently added award nominations to an actor's infobox. When I checked your user contributions, I found that you have been doing this with a number of actors' pages. Please stop! The parameters for the Actor Infobox template specifically indicate that the awards categories are for awards won. The discussion page further illustrates an effort to keep the infoboxes from overflowing -- they are meant to highlight the actor's life. I don't have the time right now to undo all of your work, but I hope you will go back and restore the infoboxes you have edited so that they only include awards that have been won by the actors. Thanks!!--— Preceding unsigned comment added by Vbd (talkcontribs) 06:52, 21 July 2007

Disambiguation link notification for November 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Robert Mueller, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kevin Ryan (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Please use edit summaries[edit]

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary.

If you use clear edit summaries, your edits won't be misunderstood. 32.218.37.123 (talk) 22:31, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
