Hi, MediaWiki message delivery. I just want to drop a message that I had just requested for a newsletter of WikiCup but I am late because I requested it on 8th January, 2014. May you please deliver the newsletter to me? Thanks. Dinosaur Fan (talk) 07:17, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Couldn't figure out Ping
This stumped me: "The comment must be signed and belong to a section in order for the notification to work."
Well, yes, my field was English. In the 60s, as you know, there was a lot of turmoil and in particular students in the US were agitated, to say the least. I had five friends: 4 switched from math to English, and one switched from English to math. My motivation was that I wanted to do something in a broad area where I could explore all my interests. I'm a curious guy. Also, I wasn't very good at math ;). I took a classics course and was surprised that I really enjoyed the Iliad and the Odyssey. The teacher in that course was terrific. It seemed like that would be a good base. Hal — Preceding unsigned comment added by Halcatalyst (talk • contribs) 19:47, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Is this a bot?
If this account is automatic, shouldn't it haver a username that reflects it as such? Also, why is it ignoring the "nobots" tag on my user page? Optimist on the run (talk) 18:50, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
- @Optimist on the run: This account is not a bot in the normal sense, but rather a part of the MassMessage extension of MediaWiki, which is probably why it ignored your tag. It's a relatively new feature that allows any user with the "massmessage" user right to send mass messages through Special:MassMessage. If you want to opt-out of all mass messages through this feature, add your user talk page to the category Category:Opted-out of message delivery. Mz7 (talk) 21:46, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
