January 2009[edit]

Killed the note.sinneed (talk) 07:08, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Possibly an error. I will look at it immediately.sinneed (talk) 07:02, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
OK, 1st, if you make a *HUGE* edit like that, an edit summary will help, a lot.
2nd, if you insert an image named "Replace this image male.svg", it looks very broken. I waffled on it. I waffled on the warning. Sorry. Shall I roll back to the edit I reverted so you can fix it, or do you want to move forward from here?sinneed (talk) 07:07, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
OK, I saw NO edit summary... but there they are. I am going to reboot. I have seen this once before. My profound appologies. I reverted my edit. You should be good to go.  :,( sinneed (talk) 07:11, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Cool, no problem. In case you were wondering, the reason I put that image there was simply that that was what was there previously. I merely copied the code from before Rockyobody removed Thomas Knapp, since he gave no reason for removing a confirmed, sourced candidate.SaltedCracker (talk) 07:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
That makes sense, and I very much thank you for your patience with my error. You are most kind.sinneed (talk) 07:19, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:FirstOperationalDragon.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:FirstOperationalDragon.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.
