Thanks for leading me from your userpage down an interesting path of Russian proverbs. I didn't realize "Trust but verify" was even one of them (and I can read just a little Russian). - Brianhe (talk) 06:00, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Leonard's[edit]

I started a Hawaii-related article that you might be interested in: User:Brianhe/Leonard's Bakery. You're welcome to contribute! — Brianhe (talk) 06:47, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

There was no article on Leonard's? How could that be? How did I neglect to notice its absence? I used to drive by that place at least weekly. I will have to check out what you have written, Brianhe, once I get a chance. Peaceray (talk) 07:05, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Not only that, but unless my search-fu is weak today, it's not even mentioned on English Wikipedia (though it is on Spanish and French Wikipedia's, go figure). — Brianhe (talk) 07:08, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
It's not on en.wikivoyage.org either! Peaceray (talk) 07:15, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

commas and semi-colons?[edit]

Hello Peaceray. I see you edited my article on Marianna Schmidt. I am wondering why you changed the semi-colons to commas. As I see it, both Chicago Manual of Style (6.60) and Wikipedia's own manual of style (9.7) suggest the use of semi-colons to separate items in a run-in list when the listed items have internal punctuation, as with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Lima Peru or Museum of Modern Art, New York. Do you see it differently? Cantabile3 (talk) 08:45, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Cantabile3, of the list, only two had internal punctuation, namely commas. However, I had nearly 30 edits that day, mostly as part of the Vancouver Art+Feminism edit-a-thon, & I did overlook converting "Museum of Contemporary Art, Lima Peru, Museum of Modern Art, New York" to "Museum of Contemporary Art in Lima Peru, Museum of Modern Art in New York, ..." I have corrected that. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Peaceray (talk) 14:30, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Marianna Schmidt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Museum of Contemporary Art (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

As there is no article for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lima, Peru, yet, perhaps landing on the disambiguation page may inspire someone. Peaceray (talk) 14:32, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Coldplay backlink[edit]

Hi, Peaceray.

I am making an article for Coldplay's newest album A Head Full of Dreams, but there is a backlink for it. I want it to be removed because:

1. I am new to this coding. I can't find it.
2. a. The Coldplay article is semi-protected to protect against vandalism.
   b. I am not an autoconfirmed user.

Thanks for understanding and I hope you can delete it soon.

Sheldon.andre (talk) 00:58, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) There's an open conversation at Talk:Coldplay#A Head Full of Dreams where followup discussion should probably go. — Brianhe (talk) 01:15, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

Is this still important?[edit]

Sorry if I'm doing this the wrong way. I just wondered if the message you posted on my Talk page was still important. I didn't really understand it when it appeared, and didn't know what I'd done to prompt it or what to do about it:

== Category formatting in Hugo (film) ==

You may want to check the Category formatting in Hugo (film). There appear to be many misformatted categories that end up as extraneous text at the bottom of the External links section rather than as actual categories. Peaceray (talk) 01:39, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi—Thanks for your note, but I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. I checked the bottom of that page and saw only valid external links, followed by valid links to other articles and categories. Am I overlooking something, or has someone else has fixed it? – AndyFielding (talk) 08:13, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Weather update for Wiknic[edit]

Hi, weather update for Wiknic: the forecast is now for 91 degrees and a high UV index. Peaceray is bringing icewater, but everyone do please take appropriate precautions for the weather, such as sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and staying hydrated. There will be some shade in the trees. It's ok for those of us who are more temperature and/or sunlight sensitive to come but leave early, or skip the event if you think that you should; people who are very young, elderly, or have other health issues are more vulnerable to heat stroke. Health and safety first. Cheers, --Pine 15:04, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Need help with user page[edit]

Hello, Peaceray.

You might know me from asking for a redirect to A Head Full of Dreams, which still isn't created due to it not being released yet. But, I need your help.

You have an awesome userpage, no doubt about it. Now, I don't mean to spam your talk page of any sort, but I need help with my userpage. It's just two sentences: one, two, the end. Can you at least send me some advice on some templates that I can use?

Thanks, Sheldon.andre (talk) 01:59, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Hey there Sheldon, I noticed your note here. I also liked Peaceray's userpage format and stole it for my own. If you are comfortable using templates, here's what you do. Go to User:Brianhe/Header and copy it to your user space, maybe User:Sheldon.andre/Header. Then edit it so it has your name instead of mine. Also take off the top template that refers to an icons subpage (unless you want to create that right now). Then insert {{template|Sheldon.andre/Header}} to the top of Sheldon.andre. That should get you the tabs at least on your userpage. You can also copy the same template to any other pages you want the tabs on, such as User talk:Sheldon.andre. — Brianhe (talk) 02:54, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
