Hello

Just noticed you reviewed and edited the Virtual airlines article I've been tending, thanks for that. Also noticed your profile here on WP, and I'm also a friend of Dorothy :) Take care. Icemotoboy (talk) 21:01, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

W.marsh is no longer a Wikipedian, so asking him any questions would prove fruitless.--King Bedford I Seek his grace 21:49, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Image/File

They should be "File:", not "Image:", as of a few months ago. It's a pretty recent thing, but it was done because some items in the Image: namespace are actually videos, PDF documents, etc. I don't think the Checklinks tool changes this; it didn't do that for me on articles that had Image:.

The site is still up for me; the link in question was missing a '/' at the end, which was causing a 404 error, but that's all. --PresN 17:38, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:The brak show volume 1 DVD cover.jpg

Thanks for uploading File:The brak show volume 1 DVD cover.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by STBotI. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 19:27, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

DA and dates

Hello... just thought I'd let you know that I've tweaked your edit to the "for" side. As it turns out, the language had already been incorporated into a sentence at the end of the paragraph preceding where you wrote it, so I have removed yours. (I've also rewritten the original one to use more of the same language that you used.) I hope this works for you. Cheers. --Ckatzchatspy 21:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Capitalisation in tables

In this edit to Wii Balance Board, you capitalised nigh on every attribute in the article. Now, the attributes work either way, but I've never come across anyone purposefully capitalising them before. Was this just a design decision or is there a benefit to using capitalised arguments? I ask because I've used lowercase up to now and wondered if I'm doing right... Greg Tyler (tc) 21:58, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for inquiring. I'm pretty sure that you've been doing fine with lowercase. I believe I just used wikEd's "Fix basic, HTML, capitalization" function because I was trying to clean up the table, but I probably should have limited the cleanup to a selection. I considered changing the case back, but seeing no harm, I just left it as the script made it. I'll change it back if you think all should be lowercase for consistency among articles. —Ost (talk) 22:22, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, cool. That makes sense. Thanks for explaining. Greg Tyler (tc) 08:38, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Checklinks not working correctly

I have fixed the problem, it was a problem with some code failing incorrectly. Also, you should avoid changing URLs as you'll kill any archive history that you might get from the Wayback Machine or WebCite. Remember there's nothing wrong with (HTTP) redirects. — Dispenser 17:41, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Rather sloppy of me :-(. Anyway, fixed now and another bug with matching the link correctly. This was part of a update yesterday to auto-recognize archive services when they're put in as regular replacements. The idea I have for the future interface is a task panel on the left with commons actions, link recovery quick links, and search moved there. The problem with the interface so far been that there's hasn't been enough space, but the panel should solve that and bring the drop down out. 132.230.61.78 (talk) 19:10, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Nintendo task force membership update

It's that time again to update membership status with the Nintendo task force, which we try to do every 3-4 months to keep our membership up-to-date.

All participants have been placed on an "Inactive participants" list. To confirm that you're still a member of the Nintendo task force, simply go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Nintendo#Members and move your name from the "Inactive participants" list to the bottom of the "Active participants" list. If you are no longer an active member in the task force, you may simply remove your name altogether. After 1 month, on October 1, all entries under the "Inactive participants" list will be removed. Hopefully you can stay with us and continue to work on Nintendo-related articles. Regards, MuZemike 17:56, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Bad edit

Your edit to List of programs broadcast by Cartoon Network redirect a dead link to another dead link and screws up the category at the bottom. Please be more careful when using tools. — Dispenser 21:50, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry. I had meant to mark that as a dead link and must have clicked off the combobox wrong. I really would have preferred to use reflinks instead of checklinks there if the tool would have let me since I was only trying to quickly title the bottom link before my other edits. But I don't see what you're talking about with screwing up the category; the categories show the same for me between edits and the only change after mine was to add another show, not to cleanup a Category or mark the link dead. —Ost (talk) 22:08, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
The sort key changed from " " (putting it at the top of the category) to "Cartoon Network original programs" (putting it at C). — Dispenser 22:17, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't know how I missed that. It was my wikEd fix that removed the space and the name gets inserted upon save. I am sorry; I've made that mistake before and I should have caught it. I fixed it now. Thanks for letting me know. —Ost (talk) 12:35, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

You might have missed something.

Just a heads up: fixing misspellings of words which shouldn't be in the article should set off alarm bells. :) Protonk (talk) 17:05, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't read the article, I'm using AWB and just wanted to fix the spelling. Thanks for letting me know. At least the secondary effect of hitting your watchlist so you could see the old vandalism isn't bad. —Ost (talk) 17:58, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
That's precisely what I was gonna come back and say. It's on my watchlist from some really weird socking/pov business a few months ago and I wouldn't have noticed the change without that odd edit summary in the watchlist. No worries. Protonk (talk) 18:03, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Anime

I've reverted your change to Anime. These are titles of webpages and should be left as they are. One in particular had a {{sic}} directly after it. —Farix (t | c) 19:35, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

The same applies to Editing of anime in American distribution. You need to go back and recheck that you did not inappropriately change titles to webpages or other articles. —Farix (t | c) 19:38, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
According to WP:MOS:QUOTE and a recent discussion at WT:POKE, "[t]rivial spelling or typographical errors should be silently corrected". I know that {{sic}} was present, but I was just correcting what I would consider a trivial spelling error and removing the template. I understand your concern, but I think the edits were in line MoS. —Ost (talk) 20:15, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
No they are not. Misspellings in article titles or webpage titles should not be "corrected", but preserved as is. These are titles and not quotes, so they don't fall under WP:MOSQUOTE. —Farix (t | c) 20:23, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
The title is being reprinted in this work, so I would think that makes it a quotation of the title. Do you know of a guideline that requires titles to be written letter for letter? If so, I would like to read it so I can follow it. If these spelling errors should indeed be left unchanged, I suggest {{sic}} be used around every mispelled title including Pokemon, not just one instance in an article as your revert leaves Anime. —Ost (talk) 20:33, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
A title is not the same as a quote. And neither WP:EL or any of the citation guidelines allow for misspellings of titles to be corrected. It will cause confusion with the reader of they follow the link an find that the actual title of the page is not the same as the one given by Wikipedia. —Farix (t | c) 20:47, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Again, I understand your point, but I still don't see anything in the guidelines to back it up. If I am missing the section, please link me to it. I'm only correcting an accent over an "e". I hardly think it will cause confusion to someone that goes to the page and does not see the accent. You may be right, but I would like to see more proof than your word. If we are able to change a title to remove CAPS, I would think correcting a missing accent would be allowed. And without a specific policy or guideline addressing cited titles, I think MOS:QUOTE comes closest. I would be happy to take this discussion elsewhere—perhaps WP:MOS and WP:CITE—to get additional opinions. —Ost (talk) 21:03, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank you ....

.... for fixing the Libya page vandalism! Next time I'll know a place to look in the edit code.

Poke --> Poké

Is there any way you can not change templates from e to é? Templates can't have special characters, I guess, and you are just linking to redirects. It's not much of a problem, but just a suggestion. Blake (Talk·Edits) 18:28, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

I can defintely do that, but I didn't know that templates couldn't have special characters. I just thought it was better to spell it correctly and I would have proposed switching to use the redirect as the default template, but I don't want to cause problems. What's the issue with special characters in templates? We have {{Pokémon}} that seems to be used and appears to work. —Ost (talk) 18:40, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't really know. It has been mentioned a few times, I think, and the "Pokedex" and "Pokemon Directory" templates don't use it, and I would assume for a reason. Blake (Talk·Edits) 18:42, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I'll search the archives to see where it's mentioned. Maybe it didn't work in the past and it does now, because I haven't seen any issue with it and we use {{Pokémon}}. I just assumed that users didn't know how to type or care about typing the "é" when they created the templates. I'm sure I can change my Find/Replace expressions, but I'm not sure I want to if the technical limitations no longer restrict templates from using special characters. —Ost (talk) 18:48, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I can only find one discussion of names of templates using "é" and it seems only to be argued that it's difficult to type. Of course, I can be missing conversations. I would argue that the actual templates should use "é" and that the ones without should be redirects. This makes it easy for users to type and use while keeping the templates named properly. —Ost (talk) 19:03, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Notability of Jason Frank as a Martial Artist

I have been reviewing actors categorized as martial artists and have come to the article about Jason Frank. Jason is certainly notable as a Power Ranger. A top priority in selecting a category is the separation of fact and fiction. Could you look over Wikipedia:MANOTE and advise me how you feel Jason meets these notability standards? I will watch for your comments here. Thanks! jmcw (talk) 01:12, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't see anything in that guideline that gives guidance on categories, and I expect a notable person to be in a category if they meet the general title or description of the category. The appropriate discussion should take place on the category talk pages in absence of descriptions on the category pages. The article discusses his martial arts experience and not his fictional character's, although I apologize for the full revert if there are categories that are not supported in the page; I'm not an expert on Power Rangers or martial arts, but the removal of categories seemed curious based on what I had recently read on the page.
Please also note that {{dead link}} instructs that "[t]his tag should be placed just before the </ref> that contains the dead link." Although links are great, references aren't required to have them. —Ost (talk) 13:27, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
From Wikipedia:Category, "It should be clear from verifiable information in the article why it was placed in each of its categories." jmcw (talk) 13:36, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I apologized if I reverted too far, but cited material is verifiable, even if the link is not presently available. I haven't questioned your concerns about the reliability of some the sources, and I agree that links would be nice to have, but I don't see that as grounds for immediate removal from a category. —Ost (talk) 13:52, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I have been convinced to give up my review of actors and the martial arts categories.Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Martial_arts#Celebrities_and_the_martial_arts jmcw (talk) 09:28, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

GCOTW

Ost. I've been wondering for this for a while. Why do you keep updating WikiProject Video games' Collaboration of the week? GamerPro64 (talk) 20:04, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

I didn't think it hurt anything, similar to the rational on {{semiactive}} that I had switched from {{inactive}}: it's easier for random editors to get back into it if it's semi-active than taken down completely and it can run itself since it's a bot. I pretty much felt that collab was dying down, but it further went away when I took a half-year wikibreak as the bot was broken and I stopped supporting it. Since the bot is back up, selecting an article is trivial (and updating history is just me liking things current and complete). These are supposed to be important topics for us and often they're left unwatched and untouched by experienced editors; I figure that even if the occasional editor and I make minor edits, it still moves the article in the right direction, compels me to add the page to my watchlist, and gets the article on others' radar—through Recent Changes, maintenance lists, etc. It also provides a check on the importance of articles that have been rated highly. It may not be the most effective collaboration right now, but I don't think that it's making anything worse. —Ost (talk) 20:57, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Alsatian Shepalute Article

Hello Ost.  :) You recently placed a reliable sources tag on the American Alsatian article. While I agree with you that it would be great to include more third party sources in this article, the truth is that at this time all available third party sources relating to this topic have been referenced. Because an increased number of third party sources is going to take an undetermined amount of time and increased outside interest, I personally feel that the tag is not necessary at this time. Please consider removing it for now as there really is no way at the moment to comply with that request. Sincerely, Shepaluteprez (talk) 04:25, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for discussing this with me. I'm not trying to own the article or the decision, spo it may be more appropriate to continue on the article's talk page if we wish to continue. I understand your concern with the tag being present when there are no more known third party sources, though I disagree with removing the tag for that reason. More than a warning about the article, the message is a good indicator for other editors to pay attention for secondary sources that we may be unaware of. Topics need to show significant coverage in reliable to establish notability, and the lack of secondary sources is a symptom. The {{primary sources}} tag seems like an accurate description of the state of the article and better than proposing that the article be deleted for not establishing notability or even tagging the article with {{POV}} for relying on primary sources to characterize such qualities as breed behavior. Whether or not third-party sources exist, the page should have them to conform with guidelines; I prefer alerting others to the problem so that they can try to fix it. —Ost (talk) 13:56, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
I will continue on the Alsatian Shepalute talk page. Thank you for your thoughts. 205.201.214.145 (talk) 02:23, 25 June 2010 (UTC) Shepaluteprez (talk) 02:51, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Sourcing

Information.svg Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source as you did to Philip Kiriakis is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. Reliable sources include soapoperadigest.com and nbc.com. Fan sites like soaps.com, soapcentral.com, soapoperafan.com, are unreliable per WP:V. Thank you. Rm994 (talk) 00:45, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, though I am well aware of the policy. I may have forgotten to find citations and I have done so now, but to be fair, the page was a stub that had little information. WP:V requires a source for material that is likely to be challenged, and I didn't expect that the general information would be be contested. I thought it better to give the article a starting point for other editors to expand beyond a history of the actors. I'm a little surprised that a self-proclaimed Days fan with related edits would choose to template me including general sources without even adding source to the biography, but I understand your concerns. —Ost (talk) 13:58, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

You edited the article List of licensed and localized editions of Monopoly with AWB to change "Vesijohtolaitos" to "VesiJohtolaitos" with the edit summary mentioning "johto -> Johto". I don't know why AWB thinks this should be capitalised, but it was incorrect. "Vesijohtolaitos" is a Finnish word meaning "water works", literally "water pipe station".

DAB script

Battle Tower (disambiguation) is currently just a redirect to Battle Tower. It is not necessary to disambiguate something to a redirect to another dismabiguation page. So whatever script you're running, make it get rid of this.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 20:18, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out, but I did that purposely. It's recommended to link to the "(disambiguation)" page when that is the intentional target, presumably so later users will know that the link doesn't require disambiguation. —Ost (talk) 20:53, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
But the disambiguation page doesn't have "(disambiguation)" in the title. So why should we link to the page with "(disambiguation)" in the title when it's not the target page?—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 21:04, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict)That does not matter: ...link to the title that includes the text "(disambiguation)", even if that's a redirect (bold added). I understand your concerns with using a redirect when one is unneccessary and I'm unsure if this approach is older than a few months, but it does seem to be the prefered approach and dab tools are incorporating it. —Ost (talk) 21:10, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
And in response to you tagging the page for speedy, please note that the guideline also states "(If the redirect does not yet exist, create it and tag it with {{R to disambiguation page}}.)" —Ost (talk) 21:12, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Well the policy is retarded. Why bother with redirects?—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 21:20, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict)The only thing I can figure is so that people trying to cleanup links to disambiguation pages know that it was intentional, since redirects are cheap. I find it can be helpful, but I wouldn't care if the approach wasn't used. As a guideline, I'm apt to follow it when I'm fixing other links, though I have no prejudice toward disputing the practice on WT:DAB. —Ost (talk) 21:33, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
The actual issue is that Battle Tower merely needs to be treated as something that is not a disambiguation page, because it dosen't disambiguate anything.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 21:30, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
That is a very good point that I hadn't even considered. Can it be turned into a redirect and included in Gameplay of Pokémonor Pokémon regions somewhere? —Ost (talk) 21:35, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Nintendo task force membership update

It's that time again to update membership status with the Nintendo task force, which we periodically do to keep our membership up-to-date.

All participants have been placed on an "Inactive participants" list. To confirm that you're still a member of the Nintendo task force, simply go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Nintendo#Members and move your name from the "Inactive participants" list to the bottom of the "Active participants" list. If you are no longer an active member in the task force, you may simply remove your name altogether. On 23 December, all entries under the "Inactive participants" list will be removed. Hopefully you can stay with us and continue to work on Nintendo-related articles. Regards, MuZemike delivered by MuZebot 17:23, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Using dabfix

Hi, I see you're doing a lot of cleanup with dab fix. That's great! Please check the results though, by default it takes the article intro up to the second full stop as the descriptor for the dab item. This can be very long, or not particularly relevant. See my diff here. Also could you change your prefs so that the edit is not marked as minor by default. You can do that here. Happy editing. Tassedethe (talk) 20:39, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing that; I had it open in another tab after I noticed I left the long description, but I had bounced to another tab. I try to fix the issue you mentioned and as of today I started using the feature where it highlights using WikEd; sorry that I missed that one, though. I manually mark my edits as minor; they generally are minor in the scheme of edits that could be done on here and I only leave the box unchecked when make many additions or reformatting greatly. —Ost (talk) 20:43, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

WP:YEARLINK advises against linking years if it is only because readers may be curious about the year. 15th century has some of the same problems, but may provide some context for the entire game instead of just one portion. —Ost (talk) 18:02, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for explanations, I see the point. Sir Lothar (talk) 18:46, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Megafauna (mythology)

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Megafauna (mythology), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Giant animal. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 20:25, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Added template for SuggestBot

Hi,

Thanks for being one of SuggestBot's users! I hope you have found the bot's suggestions useful.

We are in the process of switching from our previous list-based signup process to using templates and userboxes, and I have therefore added the appropriate template to your user talk page. You should receive the first set of suggestions within a day, and since we'll be automating SuggestBot you will from then on continue to receive them regularly at the desired frequency.

We now also have a userbox that you can use to let others know you're using SuggestBot, and if you don't want to clutter your user talk page the bot can post to a sub-page in your userspace. More information about the userbox and usage of the template is available on User:SuggestBot/Getting Recommendations Regularly.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me on my user talk page. Thanks again, Nettrom (talk) 23:46, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Ton Class

Bonjour, Ost316. Ton Classes, an article you have just rename into Ton Class, removing the idea there is several classes, is in fact mainly talking about french Godinet Rule. There where before other ton rules, english rules, and I am not sure you made a good choice. Could you ask Wikiproject sailing in good english, about this question ? Thanks, --Barbetorte (talk) 20:53, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I was just going by the article text; it doesn't capitalize "class" in the prose and it doesn't sound like a proper noun. If the article is only talking about the Godinet Rule, then that should likely be the article's title. As it is, the article seems to be about the concept of a ton class. I understand your point and you're welcome to bring it up to the project if you think that the title is flawed, but as a parallel, we don't have an article named weight classes, even though I expect that there is more than one system. I was gnoming and renaming based on WP:SINGULAR and WP:CAPS; I don't know much about the topic. —Ost (talk) 21:44, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
OK. --Barbetorte (talk) 12:35, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

IRC invitation

Because I have noticed you commenting at the current RfC regarding Pending Changes, I wanted to invite you to the IRC channel for pending changes. If you are not customarily logged into the IRC, use this link. This under used resource can allow real time discussion at this particularly timely venture of the trial known as Pending Changes. Even if nothing can come from debating points there, at least this invitation is delivered with the best of intentions and good faith expectations. Kind regards. My76Strat 08:51, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

History of video game consoles (seventh generation)

Thanks for joining the discussion on the use of the generations of video games in articles. I thought it might be helpful to reprint my first post on the OR noticeboard for you here:

There is a long debate occurring on the video game project page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Video_games/RfC_on_video_game_console_grouping) regarding the use of the term "generations" in the History of video games and related articles. Some editors have objected to the term for lacking sources. Other editors have found some sources which use the term (this one talks about generations 1-6: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://strategy.sauder.ubc.ca/nakamura/iar515p/gallagher_innovation.pdf) (this one defines generation 7: http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=epBIhmdsfxMC&oi=fnd&pg=PA184&dq=wii+seventh+generation&ots=9IbZE7z3EL&sig=AL7od0tw-uzu0EsBXc9cMqo3S_o#v=onepage&q=wii%20seventh%20generation&f=false). It is accepted that many sources can be found to place each console within a certain generation (for example: "The SNES and Genesis dominated the fourth generation of home consoles". However, certain editors have argued that it is original research and/or synthesis unless we can find one source that includes one entire list of every console and names all consoles in every generation. Others feel that as long as sufficient reliable sources can be found to name a certain console in a certain generation, that is sufficient for its inclusion as a member of that generation (and discrepancies should be handled by weighting the minority and majority positions appropriately).

You can see that the first source lists the generations from 1-6 (and defines the term "generation" while the second lists the consoles for the 7th generation. The argument on the board is that using these two sources to list generations 1-7 is OR and Synth. Obviously, I think that is incorrect, but I welcome your input.LedRush (talk) 23:35, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Campus Party

Hi Ost, thanks for your substantial cleanup of sources and linking on the Campus Party article, it's still very much a work in progress and certainly does need many more external sources. I appreciate your attention to detail and proper sourcing. - Deniz (talk) 23:40, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Physical location of Bucknell University

Most city post offices in the United States also serve suburban and rural areas around them that do not have their own post offices. The Lewisburg, Pennsylvania post office (zip code 17837), serves not only the Borough of Lewisburg, but most of East Buffalo Township, Buffalo Township, and Kelly Township, in addition to smaller parts of White Deer Township and Union Township. These independently governed places are not part of the Borough of Lewisburg (although they are within its metropolitan area). Are you saying that people do not live in these townships simply because they have a Lewisburg post office mailing address? Just because United States Penitentiary, Lewisburg gets its mail from the Lewisburg post office does not mean that it is physically located within its political borough limits. Backspace (talk) 09:42, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Bucknell is within Lewisburg and East Buffalo Township; provide reliable references if you believe it is otherwise. Whether or not other venues in other small townships inaccurately use Lewisburg as their mailing addresses—not post offices—is not an issue that I am addressing. —Ost (talk) 15:31, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
You have proven that Bucknell lies partly in Lewisburg and mostly in East Buffalo Township. Does that mean that my solution is at least as good as yours, or that we are both correct, or that we are both wrong (only in the sense of being incomplete)? I stand by my assertion that all of the above-named locations (properly) use Lewisburg as their postal address, even though they are not physically located within the Borough of Lewisburg. Backspace (talk) 22:06, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
You changed an edit to make it was "near" Lewisburg when it is "in" it; that is wrong. My edit was merely a revert to the status quo; I have no prejudice against accurately indicating both jurisdictions. But note that any similar edits would be less controversial if you would include references with your edits, as Wikipedia is based on WP:Verifiability and not WP:Truth. I'm not sure what prompted you to make changes about Bucknell's location across multiple articles, but finding and naming explicit sources improves the quality of the information over looking at a map or using personal tribal knowledge. —Ost (talk) 22:33, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Interesting this tribal knowledge business. I must admit that I have never heard the term before. Rest assured that it is not the source of my information, as I have neither attended Bucknell nor been anywhere near it (closest was New York City). My main source for such information is basically widely available maps, more specifically those showing township boundaries (in this case it was the official and widely available U.S. Census Bureau map). For this particular case I apparently made the mistake of assuming that, since Bucknell was obviously located in East Buffalo Township and close to its northern boundary, that it did not also extend beyond it. I was obviously wrong to assume this. Upon further checking I found that while most of its territory is in East Buffalo there is a relatively small part of it that is obviously in the Borough of Lewisburg. You and I both have since been able to relatively easily verify this point. Backspace (talk) 18:40, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Heading Style

Hi. I'm wondering why you recently made a whole series of edits to heading styles in the article Egg (food), by inserting gaps between the H2-H6 level markers and the text of the headings? The Manual of Style gives NO GAPS as the default style, but states that gaps may be used if an editor prefers them ([3]), but it seems odd to be changing edits in the default style to a merely optional alternative? Timothy Titus Talk To TT 11:15, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

I may have run the wikEd cleanup script on some sections that led to Advisor.js suggesting "heading-style" changes—which switches to a consistent style with an article, based on what it sees as currently most used in the editing window—that I then applied. I did not mean to override other editors if the format was intentional, and I have not known the MOS to specify either method as the default style and do not see one there now; without mention of a preference, the section that you linked to reads Spaced or unspaced multiple equal signs are the style markup for headings. I am sorry for any inconvenience and had only meant to make the style consistent within the article. —Ost (talk) 13:39, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
