Godiva device[edit]

You may be interested to know that I've created an article on the Godiva device (as mentioned in the criticality accident article). -- MightyWarrior 23:50, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! The sources you found form an interesting read as well :) -- MiG 09:21, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Your naming[edit]

Mig you can copy this And you could consider making a sub-page for this. User:MiG/whatever search that and make the page It's completely "legit".

For your question ...[edit]

On WP-fr, you must go to fr:Wikipédia:Demande de renommage de compte utilisateur/Usurpation and write your question. Regards Stef48 (talk) 05:12, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Bit surprised to find your answer all the way over here :) Thanks! -- MiG (talk) 18:30, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

MiG@svwiki[edit]

Hi! MiG@svwiki is now usurped for you --Rosp (talk) 15:26, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

You'll need to delete your global account at m:SRU if you want to have sv:User:MiGx moved to sv:User:MiG. MiCkE —Preceding comment was added at 17:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I assume 'deleting my global account' sounds scarier than it actually is... -- MiG (talk) 11:32, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Lets hope so :-). I've now moved sv:User:MiGx to sv:User:MiG, so you can now go ahead and re-unify your account. MiCkE 13:07, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
It turned out to be quite painless, duly appreciated! -- MiG (talk) 18:17, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:33, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

PM[edit]

Disambiguation pages only include information which leads to WP pages, not general information about abbreviations. So until there's an article about "Pro Memoriam" it doesn't belong on the page. PamD (talk) 17:25, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

It warrants an article, hadn't even heard of it until recently. Might want to return it within brackets. -- MiG (talk) 18:03, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! It's been nearly two years, completely forgot about this one. Has the photographer been notified? -- MiG (talk) 10:23, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Yep, at roughly the same time you were. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 22:46, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

A note[edit]
