MacGuffin[edit]

Thanks for organizing the films in MacGuffin. It's been something I've wanted to do for a while and never got around to doing. MMetro (talk) 08:21, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Don't mention it! :) BTW, if you feel that Mission: Impossible III is inappropriate for that list (since it doesn't have a proper reference for MacGuffin; not even the Wikipedia article mentions it explicitly), feel free to remove it from the list. Whoever put it there (IP address) didn't provide a reference, so I marked it as citation needed for now. If a reference cannot be provided, remove the film from the list.

regex[edit]

Hey Sebastian,

How familiar are you with regex on AWB?

I want to use AWB as a maintenance semi-bot for the IPA, but have trouble confining the changes to the IPA template. If I try under 'advanced settings', say to change apostrophes to stress marks, the change will be applied to all apostrophes in any template the IPA template is embedded in, such as an infobox. Also, I don't see how to address IPA wikitables; I can't cope with line returns in the regex. The result is thousands of false pre-parse hits for only partial coverage.

Any advice?

Thanks, kwami (talk) 07:29, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

While I'm somewhat familiar with regular expressions, I'm not familiar at all with AWB, in fact, I've never used it – and since it's Windows-only, I'll probably not be able to use it in the foreseeable future. I'm sorry! Sebastiantalk 18:30, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! kwami (talk) 18:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Hey, 1st part turned out to be easy: w char ID, you don't need an opt-out char, so it's [^|}] for "not | or }", not [^\|\}]. Might be able to get line-return rec. now. kwami (talk) 03:54, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation to our user pages?[edit]

A long time ago, I registered the user name Sebastian, but I'm not using it much anymore because of Unified login. Now it just occurred to me that both the user page and the talk page could be disambiguation pages to the pages of all active users whose name is "Sebastian". If you like the idea, please reply on my talk page. — Sebastian 23:40, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
