Vision therapy[edit]

Hi Molly have been talking to Anthonyhcole about editing the wiki page and have agreed with Brendan Barrett that I will write something conclusive which he will review before publication. Feel free to discuss this with Anthonyhcole as independent assessors and by all means with myself Peace Peaceful07 (talk) 09:37, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Little did you know how you helped me a couple of hours ago. Your Hurricane Sandy edit where you moved a sentence with the phrase "Hurricane Sandy-related deaths" drew that to my attention. And I thought, Shouldn't that hyphen be an en dash? But no, it should not, according to MOS:ENDASH. Only in a case like "pre–Hurricane Sandy", not here. So I reverted an old edit of mine to make the instances consistent. A minor, nitpicking point. Most Wikipedians would be yawning by now. But I'm sure you, a professional editor, can appreciate this. I used to earn a living as an editor myself. Yet I was never clear about this particular point. Shows that it's never too late to learn new things! --Alan W (talk) 03:29, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

You don't need to add the word "Edition" to a cite template edition field.[edit]

Hi, Molly,

Thanks for the updates to citations in the article Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale. I noticed you filled out some citations that were just bare text references to published books, filling in the cite templates and the fields in the cite templates for those. But take a look at the documentation for the cite book template, because you will see that you do not need to add the word "edition" after an ordinal number shown in the edition field of the template. The examples shown for the use of the template make that clear, and the specific template documentation says, "Edition, series, volume edition: When the publication has more than one edition; for example: '2nd', 'Revised' etc. Displays ' ed.' after this field, so |edition=2nd produces '2nd ed.'" Your recent change to the article mark-up produces results in the references that are redundant, for example "(3rd Edition ed.)". I'll fix that. Thanks for filling out the bare references. See you on the wiki. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 15:41, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.
