editing a protected template[edit]

{{help me}} I simply wanted to insert a date (1918, if that is correct) in the template:Gray's, to show how old it is.

Hi HuPi. It doesn't really matter much but just for future reference, a cleaner way to make the request like this is to go to the talk page of the template (or whatever type of page is protected) and make a {{edit semi-protected}} request (and use {{edit protected}} for fully-protected articles). Anyway, I just looked at our article on Gray's Anatomy, and it appears there were multiple editions prior to 1918, so it seems to me there are multiple editions an editor might be using that are in the public domain that might not necessarily actually be the 1918 edition when they use the template. So, by adding 1918, we would either be limiting its usage to one edition or making it wrong in those cases where that edition wasn't the one used. It would be great if the template had a parser function that allows users to insert the date of the edition they actually used, but I don't see how adding 1918 would be proper based on what I've said, unless I missed something.

Please provide a source[edit]

When you add content to an article as you did [1], please provide a reliable source to verify the claim. -- The Red Pen of Doom 17:29, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Reliable sources are those with a reputation for fact checking and accuracy. Wikipedia as user generated content does not qualify as a reliable source. WP:CIRCULAR. A good many of the hits at (not those published by Icon Inc.) or (not so much the blogs) provide the appropriate sourcing content. -- The Red Pen of Doom 18:30, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lob bowling, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charles Palmer (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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Lob bowling be merged into Underarm bowling. I think that the content in the Lob bowling article can easily be explained in the context of Underarm bowling, and the Underarm bowling article is of a reasonable size that the merging of Lob bowling will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. Jack | talk page 10:12, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

I agree with this merger. But Charlie Palmer bowled his donkey-drops overarm (I think), so perhaps the reference to him should be put in parentheses. I should be sorry to see it excluded altogether. HuPi (talk) 21:01, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

That's great. Will note Palmer. Thanks very much. Jack | talk page 03:53, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
