Edits

The "Spoiler space" trick is used to only reveal the text if you highlight the section. It's a technique used many places. Wiki uses the curly brace spoiler marking, but that leaves the text visible. Adding a div with the foreground and background colors the same, means that aside from links, the text is invisible and leaves little chance of a spoiler being accidently read. Here is an example: The line after this one is only seen if you highlight the sentence.

Darth Vader is Luke's father.

The previous line is blank, but has text.

Aagh! You spoiled it for me!!! :-) Carcharoth 14:33, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

The point of the category is to list the characters, not the articles. John Reaves 08:56, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

The easy option isn't always the best option. The category is for listing the characters, no matter how minor, not the article they're in. "Minor wizards" isn't a character. Maybe we could categorize all the characters on the article page. Something like [[Category:Harry Potter characters|name]] on the minor characters page, I'm not sure how that would look though. John Reaves 09:56, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

line breaks

Please don't add line breaks (<br>) into casual article text, as you did to Remus Lupin. They really should be reserved for lists, infoboxes, etc. It messes with viewing if you add them to regular paragraphs. – Someguy0830 (T | C) 03:06, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps I should have been clearer. Don't put line breaks into article text. It's against style guidelines. The text wraps without you manually breaking it apart. – Someguy0830 (T | C) 04:18, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
Hit return twice to start a new paragraph. Carcharoth 14:32, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Reply to categories question

Replied at User_talk:Carcharoth#Categorising_redirects. There are several neat tricks involving categorising anchored redirects that can turn a category into a listing of minor characters, even if the minor characters are merged into one article. See what I did at Category:Republic of Korea Navy ships. Carcharoth 20:07, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Quest01.jpg)

Thanks for uploading Image:Quest01.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. ~ BigrTex 03:25, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome!

I must say, I certainly feel this is the greatest site in the universe and thanks for your message of welcome!

Vision Insider 01:54, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Me too. Thanks a lot for your welcome message including many useful links. MrFirewall 13:25, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Daniel Radcliffe

Okay, and i do do that sometimes. But in the case of such immature vandalism, i worry that whoever did it, will be looking to keep repeating the vandalism. In putting a vaguer (but accurate) edit summary, i guess i'm hoping they might not notice that thier edit has been removed...Amo 02:56, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Newyorkbrad's RfA

Thank you for your support on my RfA, which closed favorably this morning. I appreciate the confidence the community has placed in me and am looking forward to my new responsibilities.

Thank you for supporting me in my RfA! It succeeded, and I now have The Tools – which I'm planning to use as wisely as I possibly can. I hope I will be worth your confidence. Thanks again! :-) –mysid 21:08, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

As you set out for Ithaka, hope the voyage is long
Knowledge is your destiny, but don't ever hurry the journey
May there be many summer mornings when
With what pleasure and joy, you come into harbors seen for the first time

Don't expect Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey
And, if I, one of your fellow-travellers, can offer something
To make this journey of yours even more fascinating and enjoyable
This is my assistance with anything I can help.

User:Stevenstone93

I anticipated your erasure of my listing, but where exactly can such a thing be reported? Take a look if you have time at User:Stevenstone93. I don't think it's acceptable, but that's just me. --Tractorkingsfan 11:11, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

User:Tmdvdsvn123

Thanks for reviewing my report, but I think if you look at this account's entire (short) contribution history, you will find nothing but vandalism. I don't see what purpose would be served by a further warning. I am not going to warn him, because doing so just provoked him to retaliate against my user page. It seems to me that your policy is encouraging this type of retaliation, but that's your choice. --13:39, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Daniel's image

I haven't looked at Daniel Radcliffe's article for a long time so I don't know when his image was removed and why? Do you know? Causesobad --> (Talk) 10:05, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Helpme requests

Yes there is me and a few other users monitor the helpmebot that post a message to the IRC Channel #wikipedia-bootcamp within seconds of a users adding helpme to their userpage. The channel also monitors tangobot3 that post when a new message comes up on the Helpdesk. If you know anything about IRC you the channel is on the irc.freenode.org server if not you can check out IRC and WP:IRC for more information.— WilsBadKarma (Talk) 17:13, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
