Wiki Loves Libraries 2013[edit]

Portland Art Museum Mark Building - Oregon.JPG WIKI LOVES LIBRARIES 2013!
You're invited to attend the upcoming "Wiki Loves Libraries" edit-athon. The event will be held from 1–4pm on Sunday, October 13, 2013 at the Portland Art Museum's Crumpacker Family Library, located on the second floor of the Museum's Mark Building (formerly the Masonic Temple). The edit-athon will focus on the local arts community (but you can work on other topics as well!). It will also kick off the Oregon Arts Project, an on-wiki initiative to improve coverage of the arts in Oregon. Details and signup here!

If you are able to attend, this edit-athon is being hosted at the Portland Art Museum. Our hope is that attendees will be interested in writing about the local arts community, though it's not required. It would be great if experienced editors like you were able to come write and meet other Wikipedians. Feel free to bring interested friends! Hope to see you there. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:31, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:27, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you so much for using VisualEditor. Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters…" tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • Do you normally use a character inserter? Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes.

Please leave your views on the MediaWiki feedback page (your regular username/password works there), or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:42, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Marie Bonaparte[edit]

You changed her relationship to Napoleon I from "great-grandniece" to "great-great-grandniece", but great-grandniece is the correct relationship.

Napoleon I's brother Lucien Bonaparte's son Pierre Napoleon Bonaparte was Napoleon I's nephew. His son was Roland Bonaparte, Napoleon I's grandnephew. His daughter Marie was therefore Napoleon I's great-grandniece. It was Marie's daughter, Eugénie of Greece, who was Napoleon I's great-great-grandniece. - Nunh-huh 07:00, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride, a global campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia during the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. The project is being spearheaded by two organizers with roots in the Pacific Northwest. Meetups are being organized in some cities, or you can participate remotely. Wikimedia Commons will also be hosting an LGBT-related photo challenge.

In Portland, there are two ways to contribute. One is a photography campaign called "Pride PDX", for pictures related to LGBT culture and history. The Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, June 21 from noon–4pm at Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 236 at Portland State University. Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own laptops and cords.

Feel free to showcase your work here!

Re: Eric Rosswood[edit]

Hey! I am so sorry, but I thought your article looked great and was worthy of being published. I thought Drafts were for newer contributors who sought help with improvements, but perhaps I am confusing Drafts and Articles for Creation? Either way, I probably should have asked you before moving the article to the main space. My intentions were good, and I only moved the article because I thought it made a good encyclopedia entry. Sorry. :(

Somewhat related, I also saw your draft for Lauren Scott. I see now that you have made a few edits to the article, but I am not sure what happens to the draft page. Either way, I am glad that we both identified her as notable and created Wikipedia articles about her.

I went to the Pride Parade today and will upload some pictures as part of Wiki Loves Pride. If you are interested, you should attend the edit-a-thon at PSU next weekend. Thanks for leaving a message. Sorry, again, about moving your draft--I won't interfere again! :) --Another Believer (Talk) 22:49, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Source you might find interesting[edit]

Kbabej,

While talking about the Hungerfords, it occurs to me that a lot of the Elizabethan-era gentry wound up in the House of Commons. There are a great many biographies available at History of Parliament Online; there's no question about it being a reliable sources and it fleshes out some of the bare genealogical detail. Here's Sir Anthony of Down Ampney, for instance. Hope you find this useful. Choess (talk) 15:19, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Awesome, Choess, I'm going to start perusing that. Thanks for the tip! :) --Kbabej (talk) 15:21, 14 January 2015 (UTC)


Most of the information for construction a citation to History of Parliament (HP) article can be found at the top an article in a blueygreen box but the authors are at the bottom in another green box. So for example taking an Wikipedia article (to which you added a link) Henry Cary, 4th Viscount Falkland there is a HP article on him. Instead of using {{cite web}} it is more useful to use {{cite book}} or {{citation}} as a full citation can be used. Taking the information from the top of the HP article gives:

  • {{citation |chapter=Carey, Henry, 4th Visct. Falkland [S] (1634-63), of Great Tew, Oxon. |title=The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1660-1690 |editor-first=B.D. |editor-last=Henning |year=1983 |publisher=Boydell and Brewer

Add in the information at the bottom of the page and the chapterurl gives

  • |first=M. W. |last=Helms |first2=Leonard |last2=Naylor |first3=Geoffrey |last3=Jaggar |chapterurl=http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1660-1690/member/carey-henry-1634-63}}

Putting the two together formats the entry so

You can always rearrange the fields once you have the information so that authors and date comes before title etc.

Another useful source for British biographies is the DNB on Wikisource, for which all 50,000 articles now exist. See for example s:Cary, Henry (d.1633) (DNB00). There are two templates for accessing DNB articles on Wikisource that fill out most of the standard fields: {{DNB}} and {{Cite DNB}}. The former adds an attribution string to the citation. This is needed because the text on the DNB (unlike the ODNB) is copyright expired so one can copy the text directly into a Wikipedia article providing you attribute it as specified in the plagarism guideline. Although sometimes there are mistakes in the DNB that are corrected in the ONDB, (not many are this bad) DNB can be more useful than the more modern ODNB on genealogical information (As the ODNB has taken an editorial decision to reduce it in their new biographies). There is no DNB article on the 4th viscount but there is one on the 1st which is the link I provided above which can be more easily accessed:

In the case of this biography the editors of the DNB have done something that is not unusual for them. They have included a biography of his wife at the bottom of his biography as she as notable in her own right.

If you are interested there is a wikiproject to port all of the information in the DNB across to Wikipedia and there is a sub-project in that called Wikipedia:WikiProject Dictionary of National Biography/Missing women

Desdemona Wadsworth Fullmer Smith[edit]

Do you know when and under what circumstances Desdemona Wadsworth Fullmer Smith marriage to Benson ended? Benson died September 3, 1869, but she married McLane in 1852. So did she divorce Benson and when? Also was she married to McLane until her death?--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk) 18:10, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Both are good questions. I don't know the answer to them, unfortunately. I read that both marriages "fell apart", but it wasn't a reliable source. I don't want to state what happened until I can find something concrete. If I find anything, though, I'll add it. --Kbabej (talk) 18:31, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Blanking draft pages[edit]

Hey! I noticed you tend to blank contents of your draft articles then copy and paste their contents at new pages in the article space. Maybe this is standard practice (I'm not sure), but I also wonder if it might be worth moving the draft page to the article space to preserve the edit history? I admit that I am unfamiliar with the AfC process, so maybe there is a system for addressing blanked draft pages, or maybe your method is even preferred, but since I wasn't sure I asked about it here. You are welcome to comment, or not; not a big deal, I was just curious about what happened to blanked draft pages. I am so glad you are still editing Wikipedia often and hopefully we can connect at a editing event soon! Keep up the great work! ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:23, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

@Another Believer: This is not allowed so please don't continue to do it. Read my notice below. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 19:29, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Draft:RRK1 a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.

I didn't realize this wasn't allowed. I was thinking about it being something that only I was working on, so I didn't want it live until it was ready.

Deletion of drafts[edit]

I've nominated your draft that you "Blanked for deletion" for deletion, as that was your original intention ;) In future, you can just put {{db-g7|reason}} on the page if it's in draft/mainspace. If it's in your userspace (ie. User:Kbabej/name), you can just put {{db-u1}}. This will let admins know you want it deleted. If you ever then want it back, go to WP:REFUND.

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Kbabej (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

I do not believe that I should be blocked. This is a legitimate account, and the one that I edit from. I created a new account to report another user for disruptive editing, believing that I would be harassed after the report. It turns out I was, and he quickly started removing things from other articles that I've written. On this account, and on the one recently created, I haven't made disruptive edits or votes. The new account was for my protection, which didn't work, since the wikihounding began soon after. Why is this account blocked then? Kbabej (talk) 21:46, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Undisclosed alternate accounts are prohibited from editing project space, see WP:ILLEGIT. That would include a prohibition against using an alternate account to file edit warring reports. Repeated violations of policy will get you blocked. Huon (talk) 22:04, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Kbabej (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

I'm very confused and upset about this. I created an account to report User:Winkelvi for Wikihounding me. He is legitimately wikihounding me, and I was afraid of retribution from doing it on my account. Which is warranted, because when I signed on today he had edited every single page I've created. EVERY single update on my watchlist is from Winkelvi removing imformation from my articles over the last two days. The wikihounding continues even as I am blocked, and I feel that the wrong person is being punished for this. I was legitimately being harassed, and didn't know I couldn't report him that way. I contribute to Wikipedia every singe day, and I love it, and I think I make constructive edits. Is there anything I can do here? User:Another Believer, you are the only editor that I know on here. Is there some sort of recourse for this? I feel that I am being punished for reporting someone for hounding me relentlessly. --Kbabej (talk) 04:42, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Creating a second account to try to gt another user in trouble without it reflecting on you is a clear violation of our sock puppetry policy. I think your very best bet would be to convince the blocking admin that you understand our sock puppet policy(you do not seem to right now) and at it will not repeat. If you could make that clear then you may be able to reduced to a temporary block, other than that you can wait 6 months and ask for the standard offer. Chillum 05:11, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

It may also help your case if you discuss your own behavior instead of talking about Winkelvi. Chillum 05:16, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Chillum. I don't agree with Winkelvi's methods, but although you have made many valuable contributions to the project, your page creation output (and deletion of that content) shows a lack of understanding of Wikipedia's notability standards and what constitutes encyclopedic information, which is why I believe Winkelvi is going after your articles. Note I've proposed or endorsed deletion for several of your articles myself. I think you may have some undisclosed conflict of interest in some of those cases, which may be clouding your judgement about their notability, but I can't be sure. The undisclosed socking (you haven't addressed the other socks you created before the Winklevi incident), however, is *very* concerning so I endorse a block though perhaps not a permanent one. You have the makings of a great editor but you really need to heed the advice the others have given you and stop worrying about Winkelvi and think about how to be less defensive and combative in regards to your edits, come clean on any alternate accounts or COIs, and learn to accept community consensus. If I were you I would spend my block time reading the many essays and guidelines on how to build good Wikipedia community to better understand how you might do this. Good luck. Valfontis (talk) 06:00, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
If you want any hope of being unblocked, stop editing using IPs. Period. There is no deadline, and any edits to "your" (see WP:OWN for why that's in scare quotes) articles with which you disagree could receive a third opinion if you would stop shooting yourself in the foot.

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Kbabej, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

-- WV 19:56, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Forget the block.[edit]

Protection is a very good reason to use multiple accounts, as per Wikipedia:Sock puppetry#Privacy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SandKitty256 (talkcontribs) 20:55, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

SandKitty256, are we to understand that based on this [1] you are encouraging an editor currently indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry to violate policy by ignoring the block, the reasons for it, and continue using socks in order to edit and block-evade? -- WV 21:11, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Request reason:

Like Valfontis suggested, I reviewed the sockpuppetry articles and make the commitment to only edit under my username and no others. I wasn't thinking when I created the account to report another user, and it was a stupid mistake that I will not be making again. I also commit to being less defensive and combative, which I can see has happened. Is there any way to have the block moved to a certain time period or a temporary block? I feel like I can make some positive edits, and I love being a part of the Wiki community. --Kbabej (talk) 20:01, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

As a checkuser has now confirmed that you made a sock after this request, I'm afraid that it's going to be hard to take your word for anything. Kuru (talk) 00:58, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Note for admins considering the above unblock request

User requesting unblock for socking has a history of using 6 different (known) socks during both 2014 and 2015. The one he is currently blocked for was created to escape detection when filing a bogus 3RR report at AN3. The most recent was yesterday (2/16/15) -- it was created and used to circumvent his current block. See SPI here:[2]. In 2014, he was blocked for two weeks as a result of socking. This time it is an indef for repeat sockpuppetry. Summary: Last year's block for socking (four socks were found via CU); this current block for socking again (knew the drill about socks, created a sock anyway); socking just one day ago while blocked for socking; now asking for leniency one day after using sock #6. -- WV 21:02, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Update; New SPI for this user filed here: [3]. -- WV 05:03, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
  • SPI result positive for new socks - See SPI result here [4]. Apparently, from time stamps, Kbabej submitted the above block review request and then created the new sock KittyKane UT. -- WV 16:45, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
I didn't create another sock after reporting you. Apparently it's inconceivable that out of the hundreds of articles I've helped on, an unregistered user would edit that same article. Especially considering you just changed content on it a few days ago. Remember when you went and edited something on every single article that I've created? Perhaps it was you. Who knows, and I really don't care, since your Wikihounding is childish and out of control. I'd rather have nothing to do with you. --Kbabej (talk) 02:02, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
You're not even addressing the point Winkelvi is making. He's talking about User:Kittykane UT, not an "unregistered user". Kitty was created on February 17 at 16:16. Your unblock request above was on the same day about 4 hours later. As Kuru says, no one is going to believe anything you say in your defense, so I suggest you give it up.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:11, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I came to this page today because of the removal of a link in Anthony Hungerford of Black Bourton to a now deleted article Robert Hunkins, Sr.. This interested me because I had initiated an PROD on Anne Hungerford Lee using the argument Wikipedia is WP:NOTGENEALOGY. I had notice that Robert Hunkins, Sr. (which linked to Anne Hungerford Lee) was created by the same editor and had considered PRODing that, but as it was not directly related to articles about the Hungerford's I let it be (more interesting articles to deal with), but I would have expressed a yes in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Robert Hunkins, Sr. if I had known of its existence. So enough on my reason for coming here at this time.

I have been looking at the explanation that Kbabej gave above for using a sock puppet, and AGF it seems reasonable particularly given the various recent reports about this being an unfriendly environment for women. However now that I have dug deeper I do no think that the explanation hold water because of Kbabej's activities just over a year ago. This edit made at 05:02, 10 March 2014 shows clearly that, nearly 1 year before the current block, Kbabej abused a sockpuppet account and quite categorically stated "AndyR112 is a different person than I am." With the block that accompanied the abuse 1 year ago, the statement above "I wasn't thinking when I created the account to report another user, and it was a stupid mistake that I will not be making again." is not mitigation. If Kbabej was not thinking when creating this account then how can Kbabej be trusted not to make similar unthinking stupid mistakes in the future? -- PBS (talk) 17:46, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Great catches on your part, PBS. Yes, how can Kbabej be trusted again? Indeed, I expect he's created yet another sock (or more than one), is either sitting and waiting to start using it to escape detection, or is using it now on articles he thinks aren't watchlisted and being scrutinized. Many eyes are on his articles because of his socking and dishonestly, no doubt. I sincerely doubt he's been able to just stop editing cold-turkey. He admitted himself (without saying it) that he needs Wikipedia and before his block edited daily for several hours a day. At any rate, I believe he's still around, and no doubt, in time, his sock(s) will be discovered and tagged and blocked once again. And on and on it will go. -- WV 00:22, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
PBS, I'm curious what Wikipedia being considered an unfriendly environment for women has to do with Kbabej's socking. I'm female, BTW. Valfontis (talk) 03:09, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

@ThaddeusB: I don't know if you've seen the rest of this talk page as this was done with AFCH but maybe a quick read through you'll see a large number of articles created by this user, especially biographies, have been deleted so keep this in mind when reviewing their submissions. Also, they're indeffed for sockpuppetry which makes that kinda odd. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 14:27, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
@EoRdE6: - I didn't see it. If I had, I would have re-submit the article under my own name instead of his and still accepted it. The article in question is a very short stub on a politician that meets NPOL. It was slated to be deleted via G13, so I added a source to prove notability, resubmit, and accepted it. So that is how he managed to get an AfC credit while blocked. --ThaddeusB (talk) 17:21, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Kbabej, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

Suggestion[edit]

Kbabej, you obviously have a lot to offer Wikipedia content-wise, you've gotten barnstars from other users who appreciated your work, and you enjoy editing Wikipedia. As long as you continue to create socks and IP edit (somewhat) under the radar you will have to "look over your shoulder" rather than edit with ease and complete enjoyment.

Another editor (Chillum) suggested the following back in February: "I think your very best bet would be to convince the blocking admin that you understand our sock puppet policy(you do not seem to right now) and at it will not repeat. If you could make that clear then you may be able to reduced to a temporary block, other than that you can wait 6 months and ask for the standard offer." I think this is sound advice and would give you an "out" when it comes to your struggle to edit via socks. When you sock and then get discovered, every edit you've made can be reverted (within reason) per WP:DENY. Every article you created while socking can be deleted per WP:G5. Once everything you've done is deleted, it is as if you were never here. Every bit of effort and time you put into those edits and creating articles will be for naught.

Why continue down this road? Why not turn your efforts the right direction and make things good again? Why continue to waste so much energy on something that is very likely going to be deleted and will just dig you into a deeper hole? I can't guarantee or even speculate what administrators would say to you now because of all the socks you have created (and socks you likely still have that are not yet discovered and/or blocked), but it's worth a try to find out, isn't it?

I am not one to wish ill or bad results on anyone. I take no pleasure in filing SPIs on you. To me, it's a shame to see a good editor's efforts and knowledge wasted over something so silly. Only you can decide what you are going to do: put your efforts in the right direction or in the wrong direction. I hope you choose the former rather than the latter. Sincerely, -- WV 22:46, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
