International Ballet Competition

Hi there. You commented out a number of entries on the above page in a recent edit, giving "Cleanup per WP:MOSDAB using Dabfix" as the reason for the change. I didn't understand how your change improved the article, so have undone it for now. I will watch this page in case you want to discuss this. - TB (talk) 19:16, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for a VERY late answer! The WP: MOSDAB is saing: "A link to a non-existent article (a "red link") should only be included on a disambiguation page when an article (not just disambiguation pages) also includes that red link." -Josve05a (talk) 20:53, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply - I see what you were doing now. - TB (talk) 10:23, 16 March 2013 (UTC)


Hi Josve05a. I came across your edit to the disambiguation page FIRA. Please review the text generated by Dabfix before saving. Since the only purpose of a disambiguation page is to help a reader find the right Wikipedia article, omit as much details as possible. Also, do not mark disambiguation page cleanup like this as a minor edit, since content is adding or removed. Thanks LittleWink (talk) 20:06, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Okey. I just added all that text bc other programs can decide ifan article links to a disbig, it would rate the % of with is the righ. -Josve05a (talk) 20:50, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Assume a can opener

Thanks for your attention to the above article. However, the system doesn't seem to like the "wikify" tag you added. Apparently it wants you to be more specific about what needs to be fixed or wikified. Could you take another look? Thanks! --MelanieN (talk) 18:13, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Done! -Josve05a (talk) 18:34, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion to improve the article. --MelanieN (talk) 20:47, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Wikify has been deprecated

Hi Josve05a! Just a friendly reminder that {{wikify}} has been deprecated in favor of more descriptive templates, such as {{underlinked}}. Until the AWB developers release a new version (soon) that doesn't add {{wikify}}, I recommend you use the most recent SVN snapshot, which fixes this and hundreds of other bugs. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 02:52, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

FYI - a new release version of AWB has been released, which fixed this issue. Happy editing! GoingBatty (talk) 20:23, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help with Benthodesmus

If you have any more information to add, please include it in the article I just created (Benthodesmus). I am a little busy right now, but I thought I would get it started. Bruinfan12 (talk) 07:50, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Olney Federal Support Center

Hi, thanks for your cleanup of Olney Federal Support Center, but could you please stop using AWB to change the page number on endnote #3? The page number is a single page, page "1-3", which is strange, but kind of like how some newspapers will have pages called "1-A" or "1A", etc. If there's a better way to note this, let me know. Thanks. Brycehughes (talk) 16:30, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Okey! I'm sorry, I just loaded the 500 latest pages and unfortunately did this mistake twice. Sorry! -Josve05a (talk) 16:34, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
No worries. Thanks! Brycehughes (talk) 16:37, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Try to use {{nobots}}. -Josve05a (talk) 16:38, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Good idea. Brycehughes (talk) 16:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)


Hi there! Just a quick note—you recently added {{dead end}} and {{stub}} to Endectocide. I have reverted your edit, because that page is a Wikipedia:Soft redirect, not a stub—for administrative purposes, it should basically be treated as a regular redirect rather than as a stub or orphaned article. Best, Fvasconcellos (t·c) 21:42, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Okey! See my las edit...-Josve05a (talk) 21:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Great, thank you! Fvasconcellos (t·c) 01:37, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Updated AWB with this edit to Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Template redirects, so you don't have to add {{nobots}} to every article with {{wtr}}. GoingBatty (talk) 20:20, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Delphic maxims

I see you added the tags that no article links to it, and 'multiple issues' to Delphic maxims. That is fine if you disliked the article or something, but it seemed counterproductive, when it linked to an article on a specific maxim, and it would have been easier to link to Delphic maxims from there. I recommend you do something like that next time.--dchmelik (t|c) 00:10, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Attack pages

Hi. Thanks for patrolling new pages. For an attack page like that Swedish one just now, there is a better tag to use: {{db-attack}} or {{db-g10}}, which blanks the attack so that it's not on the screen any more, puts the page in a high-priority queue for admin attention, and generates a suitably fierce warning for you to put on the attacker's talk page. Keep up the good work! Regards, JohnCD (talk) 11:18, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Okey! Every thing is so hard on enwp. in svwp all of the dead end templ. is one. Wikify an all db is one too, Radera (Delete). But I'm learning...-Josve05a (talk) 11:21, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Rollback granted

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Josve05a. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. For more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! ~ Amory (utc) 16:16, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Video Game Generation Pages Vandalism

Ok, but I was pointing out the pages have their prices for Nintendo consoles vandalized (seriously, the SNES was not $400 and the Gamecube was not $800 at launch) and someone with a user account should correct them and look at the rest because who knows what else they changed, like maybe even the tech specs.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:56, 31 March 2013‎

Ok. But please take it up at Wikipedia:Village pump or at the article's talk-page. -Josve05a (talk) 10:59, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Psych folk

Hello, thanks for your message. My recent edit on psychedelic folk was not intended as a test or vandalism, rather as a genuine change, considering world music is a rather contentious and controversial term that is usually meant to refer from the West as "non-Western music" (even sometimes including non-contemporary Western music currents) while, theoretically, it should basically mean "all the music in the world". Folk music has at least been limited to all pre-pop and non-classical music traditions that became eventually several current trends across the world... and I think saying "non-Western folk music" (to distinguish from the Western currents that constituted the base of psych folk) may be less ambiguous than the ever-present, problematic "world music".

Awaiting for your response. Cheers -- (talk) 17:44, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Greetings Josve05a! This edit is not vandalism, but rather needs help with sourcing/formatting. I say this not fright you out of using STiki, but to plead innocence for (talk) (an editor whom we do not want to scare away on their first contribution). Thanks though, for your hard work. Best regards, Arbitrarily0 (talk) 19:46, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Arbitrarily0, I know, I pressed the wrong button, but I did not know how to undo/fix it. Or if I should fix it at all...sorry-Josve05a (talk) 19:48, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Article I made about my band

Hi, I deleted the info because I made this wiki article: long ago for the purpose of promoting my band. I am aware that this violates the terms and conditions of wikipedia, so I ask you to PLEASE REMOVE MY ARTICLE.

Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alipan 15 (talkcontribs) 23:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Put a dm-template on the article in question, if it does not have one. -Josve05a (talk) 23:32, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
