Hey[edit]

Thanks me, it meant a lot to me that someone appreciate my little background, that makes me happy. Good luck editing for the future of mankind.Trongphu (talk) 21:30, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Apostrophe in decades[edit]

Good catch on the punctuation in "1960's".[1] Even more than article self-consistency, MOS:PUNCT actually specifically tells us not to use it ever in that context. DMacks (talk) 17:53, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Login page on iPad 1[edit]

Hi. I had the same problem which you mentioned in November at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 132#Login page on iPad 1. I see that another user submitted a tracking incident so hopefully the software folks will fix it eventually (based on a Google search it might only need a minor change to the HTML). In the meantime, I wanted to share a work-around that loads the login page with the checkbox selected:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&wpRemember=1

That is the standard login page with &wpRemember=1 tacked on to the end. Saving a bookmark to that page makes it even easier. -- Zyxw (talk) 23:28, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

An Ego-Vortex hot tub sounds like something that would actually exist. Double checked just to make sure, but sadly, it doesn't.

For cleaning up that bit of unprofessional blurb just because I asked, here's a barnstar for Mr. Nice Guy. RazingRazor (talk) 22:56, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for your courtesy (really!), but when editing items such as the entry in Scape (botany), you really don't need to consult the previous editor. If s/he feels strongly enough about it it is possible either to start a civilised discussion, or throw a conniption fit according to taste. In one case you have made a friend and in the other, you know how lucky you are, not to have made one. Win/win I call it. In the present case, your edit seems to be altogether desirable, so thanks for that too. Cheers, Jon JonRichfield (talk) 18:00, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
