Links to redirects[edit]

Hi, Lightlowemon. Thanks for your work so far, but I wanted to mention that edits like this one, where you change a link to a redirect to instead point to the redirect's target location, are totally unnecessary. The redirect works just fine, and actually has several advantages. You can see some reasoning at WP:NOTBROKEN. Thanks! Powers T 13:07, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry! There are lots of other ways to help. A lot of people start with fixing links to redirects, because it seems like a good idea, so you're far from the only one. =) It's totally non-intuitive that we should leave the redirects in place, I know. Anyway, a similar task that does need doing is to fix disambiguation pages with links. In most cases, we shouldn't be linking to disambiguation pages, but there are a lot of cases in which we are. What you do is pick a disambiguation page, find all the links to it, and fix them to point to the correct articles. But that's just one possibility -- find something you enjoy doing and go to it. =) Powers T 13:08, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

List of Bleach episodes (season 10)[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you were still thinking of taking this to FLC? rst20xx (talk) 20:38, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Hmm upon closer inspection, User:SuperSilver901 and User:Tintor2 are the biggest contributors to the list, not User:Sephiroth BCR. Maybe you are right then that you should not nominate - rst20xx (talk) 10:37, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
I assume "第" in English is "List of Bleach episode titles"? I don't know what WP's guidelines are on titles of foreign language references - should they be in the original language, or translated to English, or both? When it comes to cited quotations, I know both should be provided, but here I am unsure - rst20xx (talk) 13:01, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Bleach seasons[edit]

Yes. I have seen that claim in various featured list candidates.Tintor2 (talk) 13:10, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

By the way, good work in the Bleach video games list. It is looking very good.Tintor2 (talk) 13:51, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Done. I also added the peer review to the wikiproject animanga's news and to the to do section from the wikiproject from video games to get more attention. Don't be nervous. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 16:50, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry the FLC didn't pass. There were only comments and nobody against it. Feel free to renominate it if you want.Tintor2 (talk) 13:47, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Official Bleach Page[edit] loads perfectly for me and does not redirect anywhere. Please stop removing the link. Maybe an issue with your browser? -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 14:12, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Hello. Since you commented during the last FLC of List of One Piece manga volumes, I thought you might perhaps want to comment on the current one as well. I have posted the same message on every editor's talk page who commented during said FLC. Regards, Goodraise 11:05, 23 August 2010 (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 (or very recently had) 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 in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:15, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

for for → for[edit]

Just checking an old article and read that you "fixed: for for → for using AWB". Thought I'd point out that the sentence in question was only correct with two "fors". I don't know what AWB is, but if it's some sort of robot or something you may need to change to actually checking edits yourself, as it's not hugely effective. (Having undone this edit quite a few times now I've simply reworded the sentence in the latest version.) Saint|swithin 06:39, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

HTML codes for "degree", "mid dot" etc[edit]


You recently cleaned up an article to which I was a major contributor. Unfortunately you replaced a number of HTML codes such as "& middot;" [I added a space to prevent the code being translated] with text. The reason the HTML codes were there was to ensure correct display of these characters on all devices. In view of this, I have undone your edit". Martinvl (talk) 12:42, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

I wasn't aware that the HTML codes broke on different devices, I suggest putting a hidden comment at the top of the page in caps to ensure other editors know this. If you don't mind me asking, which devices don't work? --Lightlowemon (talk) 12:46, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
I do not have the details. Please read Help:Wiki markup. Martinvl (talk) 12:59, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

  • Hey, there's no problem that I can see with stepping in to help out with fixing issues in a GA review- I didn't want to see it fail any more than you did. As far as dates in references goes- MOS:DATE#Acceptable date formats. You can do "November 5, 2013", or "5 November, 2013", or (in references only) "Nov 5, 2013", "5 Nov, 2013", or "2013-11-05". The problem I find with the first four is that, while they're clear, they're not universal- America goes November 5, but Europe goes 5 November. I personally prefer "2013-11-05", year-month-day, since it's an international standard, sorts well, and it's easy to see if something isn't in the same format. It doesn't really matter, though, as long as all of the references keep to one style. --PresN 16:37, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

List of songs recorded by Jason Newsted[edit]

Hi Lightlowemon, I'm just following up on the comments you made on the FLC for List of songs recorded by Jason Newsted: are you happy with the further efforts of GrappleX on the page, or are there still some further points that need addressing. You are, of course, under no compunction to add any further comments or support, but in my role as delegate I thought I'd check. All the best. - SchroCat (talk) 23:05, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Many thanks! All the best. - SchroCat (talk) 18:32, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Audie Murphy articles[edit]

Please stop running AWB on all articles connected with Audie Murphy. I know this is your way of helping out at Wikipedia, but AWB is not consistent in how it makes corrections. It is not helpful. These articles are in various stages of review, or have been reviewed in the format they need to be. AWB tends to use a scattershot approach on how it works, changing one instance of something but not others. Those reviews get quite picky on formatting. I'd rather manually make the adjustments myself, and don't want AWB coming in afterwards and diddling on it. Please stop running AWB on all articles connected to Audie Murphy. Thank you. — Maile (talk) 14:54, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

List of presidents of FIFA[edit]

Hello, I restored the Unreferenced template as there are no references on the article. Not sure why you changed it. Zarcadia (talk) 10:54, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Honestly, I didn't even realise there were two different templates, I thought it was AWB fixing a redirected template. I think the two templates are somewhat interchangeable though, but Unreferenced is a lot more direct and to the point. --Lightlowemon (talk) 11:00, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:03, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Can you please use better edit summaries than "Clean up using AWB"? That's a subjective term (cleaning up what and in whose opinion does the article need to be cleaned up?) It gives the impression you're running at full speed through lots of articles without thinking about what you're doing. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:01, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
