Excellent Contributions[edit]

Thank you for correcting my misunderstanding about the layout of Tahrir Square. Looking at your contributions, it looks like you're doing a great job of editing articles about Egypt at a time when many of us want to learn more. (talk) 19:48, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Category query[edit]

Hi there. I've seen many of your category edits over a number of months. There are some features of the edits that I see recurring, the purpose of which I'm really not sure of, so I thought I'd ask. The easiest way to ask about some of these might be through an example, so I've just chosen this edit more or less at random because it has some of the features I am wondering about:

  1. Indentation of content. For the line that begins, "It occurred and was peacefully resolved ...", there is not one colon mark added for indentation, not two, not three or four, but ten indenting colons added. What is the purpose of this? Why does it need to be intented at all(The same question could be made regarding the four colons added before the {{cat main}} later on.)
  2. White space. Your category definition/commentary is then followed by two blank lines and then a {{-}}, adding a considerable amount of white space at the head of the category. This is perhaps not the best example for this particular query. In the past, I have seen you add up to eight or nine blank lines of whitespace in this fashion. What is the purpose of this? Why do we need whitespace at all in the category header? Why do we need to insert a {{-}}?

I appreciate that the reason for these types of edits might be because you subjectively feel that it just looks good. If that's the case, I would suggest that maybe we need to remember that what looks good on Wikipedia on the monitor/device that we use to access the website may not look very good at all when others access the same content on their monitor or device. In particular, I have noticed that the excessive indention can cause problems when users access content on the mobile Wikipedia site. Or maybe there's another reason for these types of edits? I don't know, so I just thought I'd ask. – Good Ol’factory (talk) 08:45, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I also share Good Ol’factory's above concerns, and would very much appreciate your consideration of the issue. Thanks. --Paul_012 (talk) 02:26, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
I hope our inquiries didn't scare you away. I think we both look forward to hearing from you whenever you're back. Good Ol’factory (talk) 14:11, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi, I see you are editing again. When you get a moment, I'd appreciate a response regarding this. Good Ol’factory (talk) 00:47, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not in the business of demanding that users answer me, and I'm not going to do so here. However, it is starting to look like you're ignoring my questions. It would be polite to let me know whether you are going to respond. But if you don't say anything, what option do I have than to involve other users in this issue? Good Ol’factory (talk) 04:45, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi, see here if you decide you'd like to respond. Good Ol’factory (talk) 06:58, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I would like to add my voice with those above and Anna F. below in saying that it's in your best interests to have this conversation. It's clear you're a veteran here and understand that this is fundamentally a collaborative project, that communication is essential. Ignoring your fellow editors is impolite and highly unconstructive. No one is out to get you, but don't be surprised if your behavior starts to draw more curious onlookers here. -- œ 08:09, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Nav templates[edit]

Hi there! May I ask why you are inserting navigational templates to unrelated articles (example)? Navboxes normally should include links to articles in which they are placed (see WP:BIDIRECTIONAL), but that, of course, is normally on the condition that those articles belong in the navbox in the first place. The scope of the "Administrative divisions" navboxes is to cover, well, administrative divisions, yet you are placing these boxes in articles about physical geography features and nature reserves, which makes no sense. Could you please elaborate what you are doing? Thanks.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 27, 2016; 16:39 (UTC)

From Anna[edit]

Support my movement for a new icon!

Hello, my friend. I know, totally know, you are here to help build this encyclopedia. You have made 173,817 edits! Thank you! You are appreciated. I want you to make another 173,817 edits but worry a little.

I see from your talk archives that you sometimes do things the way you think is right even when others object. You may be right. But you know how it is here. Even when you are right, if a bunch of others object, you simply must abide by community wishes. That is a good thing, right? I want to replace the top-left Wikipedia globe in all articles with a picture of meerkats, but the community (including you, probably) disagrees. Are they and you wrong? Yes! Obviously! But I have to listen to you. Your voice matters.

So please, please, just omit the ::::: and {{-}} and observe the other issues pointed out. Using edit summaries would be great too. Please just stick with whatever is conventional.

And please communicate, if you can. I am friendly. My best wishes,

Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:24, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

edit summary[edit]

An edit summary is a brief explanation of an edit to a Wikipedia page. When you edit a page, there is a small text entry field labeled Edit summary located under the main edit box and above the Save page button:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)


This is a minor edit Watch this page

By saving changes, you agree to the Terms of Use, and you irrevocably agree to release your contribution under the CC BY-SA 3.0 License and the GFDL. You agree that a hyperlink or URL is sufficient attribution under the Creative Commons license.

The edit summary field appears above the "Save page" button

It is good practice to fill in the Edit summary field, or add to it in the case of section editing, as this helps others to understand the intention of your edit. Edit summaries are displayed in lists of changes (such as page histories and watchlists), and at the top of diff pages.--Moxy (talk) 08:08, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
