Hi MeanMother, You were quite right. Well spotted and thanks for telling us. Someone had made a mistake and replaced the text of the tutorial with an article about an Nepalese village. I reverted it but you must have come upon it while it was wrong. These things happen sometimes!!--Harkey (talk) 19:59, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sylpheed, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Japanese (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.

November 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm Theopolisme. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Suicide of Amanda Todd, but you didn't provide a reliable source. I've removed it for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Theopolisme Boo! 01:32, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

In response to your feedback[edit]

This should work: add

.postedit {
   display: none;
}

to your skin.css page. This was discussed at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Small new feature coming on Thursday.

Human vs. manned vs. crewed[edit]

I believe the "crew" word at Human mission to Mars article has a historical background that has to do with using gender-neutral terms at Wikipedia. I has been a very sticky subject at spaceflight related articles (and WP project) with very heated debates. Just a heads up. Thanks, Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 20:21, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

'Minor' edits[edit]

Hi there MeanMotherJr! Please only mark edits as 'minor' if they're minor. If you'd like to reinstate your revert related to a currently discussed issue (which, unfortunately, you chose not to engage in at all when you made your edits) then please do not incorrectly assign it as minor. Also recommended: Engaging in the discussion at the talk page. Cheers! PeterTheFourth (talk) 00:27, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

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.

Changing section titles[edit]

Hi MeanMotherJr, I see you slightly changed several section titles in Reforms of Portuguese orthography. As section titles serve as link targets (like this) my question is: Have you checked whether or not the old titles were linked to? (The easiest way to do so is use the What links here tool on the left of the page. In case one of the old titles actually was a link target the way to restore functionality is to either change those links on the other page(s) or convert the original section title into an additional {{anchor}}.)

Mosin-Nagant[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to mention that when you were editing Mosin-Nagant, you somehow changed .308 inches and .312 inches to "2.8mm/.11in" and "2.9mm/.11in". I see the rest of your edits are in good order, but you might want to watch out for that; I suspected someone was vandalizing the page at first. AnnaGoFast (talk) 02:14, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

I just reverted an edit of yours on Grand Rapids, Michigan for errors along the same line. Please familiarize yourself with Template:Convert and use it instead of manually calculating conversion. It will give better more uniform appearance to the articles, save you from having to calculate and save others from having to fix miscalculation. Thanks. John from Idegon (talk) 00:06, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
The reason I rounded to 50 km is because 30 miles is equal to ~48.28, and the article reads that Grand Rapids is "located on the Grand River about 30 miles east of Lake Michigan". The "about" suggests that the value of "30 miles" is an approximation; I tend to round values that are approximation, and also tend to avoid the convert template you recommend because it often gives unnecessarily precise values; I did not know of a way to around them at least to the closest whole (or half) number. I'll try heeding your advice from now on. Thanks --MeanMotherJr (talk) 01:55, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Recent edit to Uffizi[edit]

Information.svg Hello. I noticed that you recently made a contribution to the Uffizi article that seemed to be a test. Your test worked! However, test edits on live articles disrupt Wikipedia and may confuse readers. If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you! Materialscientist (talk) 00:23, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
