November 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Smiley may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • (sometimes simply called a '''happy''' or '''smiling face''') is typically depicted as '''<code>:-)</code>''', '''<code>:)</code>''', or '''<code>(:</code>'''. The smiley is a stylized representation of a [[Smile|smiling]]

Disambiguation link notification for July 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ching Chow, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chinese. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Curtis Banks[edit]

I've reverted your change to the Curtis Banks page (adding a category) as it is not, in fact, a bank — the "Banks" in its name comes from the surnames of its two co-founders, Rupert Curtis and Chris Banks. — Zcbeaton (talk) 19:52, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

@Zcbeaton: Thanks for letting me know. I've found a better category that seems to suit the page: Financial services companies of the United Kingdom. Paul2520 (talk) 03:38, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Category:Disambiguation pages[edit]

Please don't manually add pages to Category:Disambiguation pages. As it says in the prominent notice in the Notes section of that category description page, you should use one of the disambiguation templates instead. Thanks. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 15:49, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

@R'n'B: Thanks, Russ. I will use the disambiguation tempates from now on. -Paul2520 (talk) 17:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

re:AWB script summary?[edit]

I've just implemented the changes you suggested. There is now a checkbox next to the summary box, which will automatically append (via AWB script) to your summary when it's checked. The summary box will also be re-enabled when the script is not busy loading something. So, when the status bar at the bottom doesn't show a loading icon, the summary box will be editable. Thanks for the suggestions! Joeytje50 (talk) 16:26, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

@Joeytje50: It works great, thanks! I would suggest putting a link to the AWB script page, but I'm unsure it will let you do that. Paul2520 (talk) 21:33, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Patrol of Humphreys, Oklahoma[edit]

At the point you marked the article as patrolled its only verifiable source was actually for another place, Creta, Oklahoma. Take care please. Bazj (talk) 07:43, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

@Bazj: Thanks for the message. I saw two sources, though: one from the USGS and another being a book. Could you explain further what you meant? Paul2520 (talk) 08:02, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
The current version is dated 22:54, 18 August 2015 in which the link has been corrected. The patrol log shows it was patrolled at 12:58, 18 August 2015,so the version you patrolled was this one in which the the USGS link pointed here to Creta. Regards, Bazj (talk) 08:11, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
@Bazj: my apologies. Good catch! Paul2520 (talk) 08:13, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Your edit on List of Crayon Shin-chan episodes[edit]

I just wanted to comment that the note references were indeed gone at the time I removed the notes section. The edit after mine by Callmemirela reinstated those, but that editor did not reinstate the (now needed) note section. I should probably have noticed that they were re-added (obviously the page is on my watchlist), but... Anyway, thanks for fixing the problem. Rwessel (talk) 02:47, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

I apologize about this. I was reverting a user who had removed sources just because "writers are no longer needed". That does not justify such removal. Again, I apologize. Callmemirela 🍁 {Talk} 02:50, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
@Rwessel: That makes sense. I didn't mean to undo your work. Thanks for helping Wikipedia! And @Callmemirela:, thank you for commenting here. Paul2520 (talk) 04:21, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Debate on Bernard Shaw's nationality.[edit]

Was he "Irish" or "British" or do we need to define his nationality in some other way? A debate on the subject, to reconsider a long-standing consensus that he was Irish, has started at talk:George Bernard Shaw. Just in case you're interested. Current comments are at "Nationality", at the foot of the page - although an earlier thread at "Irish"? may also be relevant. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 05:49, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

@Soundofmusicals: Thanks for the notification. I'll take a look. - Paul2520 (talk) 06:55, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:

Please check this page and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 00:18, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Persondata[edit]

Please do not remove Template:Persondata manually. KasparBot is in the process of moving all that information over to Wikidata, and then it removes the template once that is done. Thank you. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 21:09, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

@Nihonjoe: Thanks for the tip. I'm fine not removing any more, though it seems misleading that Template:Persondata says, "This template is to be removed from all biographical articles in which it has been transcluded." - Paul2520 (talk) 21:16, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted the "rollbacker" permission to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. – Gilliam (talk) 06:19, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

@Gilliam: wow, thank you. I will read up on it, and use it for its intended purpose. - Paul2520 (talk) 06:58, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
@Gilliam: Thanks for bestowing this privilege on me. I've learned how to use it, and seem to have done it correctly a couple of times. For future reference, if there is an IP address (or user) doing what we saw, according to Wikipedia:Vandalism, I should report it to Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism, assuming someone like you doesn't catch wind as quickly as you did? - Paul2520 (talk) 17:20, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
You can report disruptive users to AIV if they continue to vandalize despite multiple recent warnings. In fact you can use Twinkle to leave the warnings and to report them at AIV in a few clicks. To leave optional user warnings, open the vandal's talk page, and click on the Warn tab at the top of the page. (You would have to enable Twinkle first by opening your Preferences and clicking on "Gadgets"). Thanks.– Gilliam (talk) 18:19, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
@Gilliam: Hey, thanks! I've heard of Twinkle. I've just enabled it, and look forward to learning more about it. - Paul2520 (talk) 18:25, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
