- Is is actually quite frequent. The most common mistake made when creating a reference, especially one where you use one source for multiple references (a b c d e), is to forget to "close" the reference by using a forward slash (/) at the end. The forward slash "closes" the reference. Without it, it blocks out the text until the next / comes along. So, if you look for <ref>the forward slash</ref>:
- <ref name=TIME>author, article, publication, date, retrieved,<ref>
- <ref name=TIME>
- <ref name=TIME>author, article, publication, date, retrieved,</ref>
- <ref name=TIME/> - (without a space)
- <ref name=TIME /> - (with a space)
Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice
As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.
We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.
You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.
We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!
Yes Yes it's absolutely fine. I thought the vandal had put the entire template and hence deleted the entire template since the vandal was abusing our God. I didn't check the diff. My mistake. Thanks, Kensplanet (talk) 20:39, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Use of minor edit flag
Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. --John (talk) 22:28, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
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.
