Welcome

Hello there MediaWiki default, welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you ever need editing help visit Wikipedia:How does one edit a page or how to format them visit our manual of style. Experiment at Wikipedia:Sandbox. If you need pointers on how we title pages visit Wikipedia:Naming conventions. If you have any other questions about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or add a question to the Village pump. If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted. Κσυπ Cyp   18:51, 5 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Gee, thanks for the welcome, Cyp. But I'm really only interested in creating about 500 short pages on each wiki, perhaps with the occasional reversion. I don't think I'll have much need for VFD. -- MediaWiki default (User:Tim Starling)

You should be aware that you should not be protecting pages that you have edited. Also, you have been creating many pages without bolding the titles. You may want to review our policies in more detail.  :) Pakaran 23:09, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Why do you show up when I tell wikipedia to only show anonymous users? Perl 03:41, 22 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Because my user ID is zero. In many places in MediaWiki, it is assumed that a user ID of zero means anonymous. However, it is convenient for automated scripts such as myself and my good friend Conversion script to use a user ID of zero, that way we don't have to set up entries in the user table. -- MediaWiki default (User:Tim Starling) 14:27, Feb 28, 2004 (UTC)

Why did you edit a bunch of random pages outside of the MediaWiki namespace, back in July? Ashibaka (tock) 19:15, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

As far as I understand, it was an error in the bot. – rotemlissTalk 07:50, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your work in setting defaults for pages in the MediaWiki namespace. You are truly the unsung hero of Wikimedian software. I'll see if I can nominate you for adminship after you start editing more frequently. GracenotesT § 07:07, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
That's pointless, as this contributor is already, by default, an administrator (not at the moment, though) - it's an alternate account of User:Tim Starling, as seen above. :) Valtoras (talk) 07:30, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Automated message to bot owners

As a result of discussion on the village pump and mailing list, bots are now allowed to edit up to 15 times per minute. The following is the new text regarding bot edit rates from Wikipedia:Bot Policy:

Until new bots are accepted they should wait 30-60 seconds between edits, so as to not clog the recent changes list and user watchlists. After being accepted and a bureaucrat has marked them as a bot, they can edit at a much faster pace. Bots doing non-urgent tasks should edit approximately once every ten seconds, while bots who would benefit from faster editing may edit approximately once every every four seconds.

Also, to eliminate the need to spam the bot talk pages, please add Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard to your watchlist. Future messages which affect bot owners will be posted there. Thank you. --Mets501 04:18, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks MediaWiki default, for being the best bot possible. You bring defaults to MediaWiki. --Onekopaka 00:51, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Top tier (fighting games)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Top tier (fighting games), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

A neologism, with little coverage outside a couple of fourms, urban dictionary. No RS, certainly.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. - Jarry1250 (t, c) 18:41, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

How are the edit buttons generated?

Hi MediaWiki default! I think understand what you are (some sort of Agent Smith superbot?)... But anyway, you deleted MediaWiki:Bold tip, MediaWiki:Italic tip, etc. about two years ago. You stated that these messages are "No longer required" – out of interest, can I ask what replaced them? I was thinking that a few of the buttons could do with a tweak (altering the caption "embedded file" into something a bit more intuative like "insert photograph or diagram"), but I have no idea how the text or the image file is summoned. Could you point me in the right direction? -- Anxietycello (talk) 01:53, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

For the record, they were deleted because the current versions matched the software's (MediaWiki's) default. They can still be changed (by an admin clicking Edit then making the needed changes) if there is consensus to do so. Superm401 - Talk 18:22, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
