To-Do[edit]

For my personal reference...

MaryGaulke (talk) 19:20, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Page view tool (and other stuff)[edit]

Are you aware that it is easy (well, relatively easy) to instantly see how many readers have accessed a page, as well as other useful stats. For example, it tells me that there have been 99,385 pageviews of LinkedIn over the last 30 days.

If this would be helpful, you simply need to add:

mw.loader.load('//meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Hedonil/XTools/XTools.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

to your common.js file (which does not yet exist).

If this sounds like a bad infomercial (I'll understand) ask at the Wikipedia:Help desk and they will confirm it is legitimate.

If you do not know how to do it, let me know and I'll do it for you.--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:30, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

This is really neat! Never experimented with it before but very cool. Thanks for the tip. Mary Gaulke (talk) 13:37, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I thought you would find it helpful :) --S Philbrick(Talk) 14:03, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 4[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.

Recent e-flux edits[edit]

Hi, Thank you for your edits to the e-flux page. I actually wrote the introduction and subsequent paragraphs after which e-flux copied this text to use on their about page. I can see how this may be confusing but hopefully this clarifies. Also I would like to amend the citations you flagged in the references section but I can't find where to correct his in the code—can you let me know so that we can remove the alerts on the page? Many thanks

Ah, that's helpful to know! I would make a note of that fact on the article's Talk page so no one else adds the copy and paste notice back in.
The code for each reference is embedded in the article where the source is first referenced - so for instance, you'll find the code for the first two references right after the first sentence of the article. Does that make sense?
P.S. Don't forget to sign talk page posts with four tildes. There's a button for it at the bottom of the editor. :) Mary Gaulke (talk) 22:11, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Mary! I'll add it to the talk page and will work through those changes to the citations. Morelcasares (talk) 20:56, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks so much for reviewing! Would you be up for adding links to this page to the Robert Adams disambiguation page and Analog Devices? (Bob is already mentioned in the second article, he just needs his name linked.) I'm asking you rather than doing it myself because I have a COI. I would really appreciate any help!

Dow Corning[edit]

How about getting the Dow Corning article a higher resolution version of the logo. See Exxon Mobil or Apple, Inc. where we have an svg file that has unlimited resolution. Svg files store the image as vectors that can be scaled to any size while retaining resolution.

That's a great tip, thank you!

Orphaned non-free image File:Dow Corning Logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Dow Corning Logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:43, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@Stefan2: Hi, thanks for the notification. My goal is to get this image added to Dow Corning to replace the lower-resolution version of the logo currently featured in the article; however, I do not want to edit the article myself as I have a conflict of interest. (I work for a communications firm that represents Dow Corning.) If you have a moment, I would really appreciate it if you swapped in the new upload; otherwise, I'll be working in the article's Talk page to get this change made ASAP. Thank you!

Disambiguation link notification for March 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Abobaker Mojadidi, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Khalifah (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

punctuation and fixes to Bleach (American band)[edit]

You made a change to the Bleach (American band) article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bleach_%28American_band%29&diff=677677569&oldid=668385014 In that edit you too

"Epidermis Girl",

to

"Epidermis Girl,"

MOS:LQ states in part, "On the English Wikipedia, use logical quotation style in all articles, regardless of the variety of English in which they are written." What that means is that unless the song title ended in a comma, the comma should not be part of the content in the quotes. I fixed that one, but you seemed to indicate that you were going to make more such edits. Please be careful to use logical quotation style. Walter Görlitz (talk) 02:23, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that! I'll make sure that's consistent throughout the article. By "more to come" I just meant I'm planning to do further cleanup of the article (apart from punctuation) so no worries there. Mary Gaulke (talk) 15:59, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
