assume good faith[edit]

With the activity of meatpuppets and such like, I find the WP:AGF guideline thought provoking. An accusation of meat puppetry directly breaks the guideline, which tells one what to assume, and thus what to think. To think otherwise, to even suspect it, is not according to WP:AGF, it would seem. Jlittlenz 10:05, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

"Assume good faith" does not mean "All editors are always acting in good faith." It means "As long as a supposition of good faith is compatible with what's going on — as long as you can reasonably assume that another editor just disagrees with you, or is just figuring out how the system works, or just has bad English, or whatnot — you should continue to assume good faith and try to cooperate with that editor." —RuakhTALK 15:13, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer be able to have them marked as minor by default. For more information on what a minor edit is, see WP:MINOR or feel to get in touch.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:35, 13 March 2011 (UTC)


I cross-posted your comment on donations to the fundraising page; you have a reply here. Re the local chapter, though, we've discussed it: I'm not sure we have sufficient interest or a specific enough idea what we're doing to be starting a chapter just now. sonia♫ 11:51, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Do I know you?[edit]

Hi John, just wondering if you're the same John Little who used to work at the (former) Henderson Line Depot of Telecom New Zealand? If so, I used to work with you there. I was a junior linesman back in the day. AugurNZ 08:47, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

No, sorry, that's not me. There is, or at least there has been, a few of us, though I've not met any of them. I used to get calls for them because I have a listing in the phone book as John rather than J, but I think people don't use the phone book any more.

Thanks anyway, maybe I'll see you around on WikiProject New Zealand some time. All the best. AugurNZ 11:23, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
