Spell correction[edit]

Hi Sellyme,

While I appreciate your spelling correction in St._Thomas_Higher_Secondary_School,_Kozhencherry I intentionally left it since the title of the web page contains 'Heigher'. I just modified the reference while you were editing (there was an edit conflict) so it now stands the same. If you still feel that in WP it should corrected, then please go ahead. Mathew Joy (talk) 10:55, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Okay then. Seems like it would be an unintentional error though... Maybe adding a [sic] would be the way to go. Sellyme (talk) 10:58, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Spellchecking vandals[edit]

Hello there. Are you a bot, or are you using some sort of software to find pages which need spelling corrections? I'm a little concerned that your last two edits have been to correct the typos in obvious vandalism sentences which should have been deleted rather than corrected ("[a rubber duck] generally has a beard & a smell similar to rotting flesh", "The great fire of london was a bad day This is totaly random"). --McGeddon (talk) 08:41, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I actually noticed both of these things while fixing them. I then re-edited to revert the rubber ducky spam one, however it had already been reverted when I tried to, and the Great Fire of London one was protected. I do see almost all vandalism, but sometimes I can't actually fix it before others. Sellyme (talk) 09:29, 14 October 2010 (UTC)


Spellchecking software problem[edit]

Hi, As McGeddon says above, it is clear that you are using some sort of software to correct spellings, but there are weaknesses in the system, as it has 'corrected' the spelling of the French word "imaginé" to "imagineé" on two pages on my watchlist (example). Clearly it cannot recognise the accented 'e' and so reads the word as if the last e were missing. This may have affected other pages, in which its 'corrections' are in fact introducing errors. Paul B (talk) 09:03, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Huh, that's unusual. I'll look in to the bot, and see if it's fixable. Thanks, I'll keep my eyes peeled for that in the future! Sellyme (talk) 09:26, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
As a heads up, you've also corrected "www.newyorker.com" to "www.New Yorker.com". If this is a bot that you've written yourself, spellchecking is notoriously difficult to automate accurately - it's not very safe to have it running without any human verification of its edits. More seriously, it's misleading to other editors to have it running on your main account, where it looks more like a human user running a plugin, rather than a bot running on automatic. You should take a look at Wikipedia:Bot_policy#Bot_accounts, which requires bots to be run from separate accounts with "Bot" in their name, so that other editors know it's an automated process. (There are also requirements for having a bot approved by a review panel before you switch it on.)
Most of its edits seem fine, though! So thanks for your contributions, whatever happens from here. --McGeddon (talk) 09:37, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it isn't automated. It's Lupin's famous design. I have had one or two (or five) errors, but thanks for your help! I'll grab a coffee and start paying more attention. Cheers! Sellyme (talk) 10:22, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

The Delhi Games are over, and why does it the 2013 Lusophone Games are in 28 days? Pretty damn cool otherwise :D Sellyme (talk) 07:37, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh yes, I couldn't find the event date. Oh it ended yesterday; that's really really fast. ANGCHENRUI WP:MSE 07:58, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

You didn't need to put up a new template, the previous one would have/has updated. Sellyme (talk) 08:44, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Apologies! I totally forgot about that one. ANGCHENRUI WP:MSE 09:25, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
What do you think of the current countdown banner? ANGCHENRUI WP:MSE 11:51, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Looks awesome! So we're meant to work on the South American Games? Sellyme (talk) 21:24, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, if you have the time to. Cos there's a lot of other stuff to be done first. Haha. Cheers, ANGCHENRUI WP:MSE 06:15, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I stepped on your edit. Huggle is tempramental today. I will fix the article in a sec. --Diannaa (Talk) 22:28, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Haha, no problem. It seems quarter of a second late reverts are a bit of a problem. Oh well, it still gets fixed eventually :) Sellyme (talk) 22:30, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did with " title="Linkification: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Maine_(band)?diff=390962572">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Maine_(band)?diff=390962572 this edit to the page The Maine (band).

Me[edit]

I'm a "He" and I was using WP:Igloo--Talktome(Intelati) 00:52, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Ah okay. I went to revert an edit using Huggle and saw your reversion already in place, so I presumed you were using that.

The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar[edit]

For being even faster than me in reverting vandalism on the Michael Jenkins article. And of course, all other vandalism prevention work you've done. 121.7.4.135 (talk) 07:45, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh... Wow... My first barnstar :D *wipes away tear*. Thanks for that! I'm glad I'm of use :) Sellyme (talk) 07:57, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Congratulations, Sellyme!!1 You deserved it. :D JaumeBG 08:18, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! But did you have to link to that? >.< (Also, I got a barnstar before you. You owe me $50) XD Sellyme (talk) 08:20, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
What? We never bet on that! D: JaumeBG 12:06, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Stop linking every useless thing you say! Sellyme (talk)
Wow, you've been reverting vandalism at a blinding pace recently. Congrats on the barnstar. Pufferfish101 02:21, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad my complete and utter lack of a life is helpful now. Sellyme (talk) 02:37, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Congrats! Its timely; great job! Its your first so far? ANGCHENRUI WP:MSE 06:17, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it's my first so far. Hopefully not my last though! Thanks to everyone, I never knew I was this popular! Sellyme (talk) 07:02, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Nice to know that you support the corrupt federal government.[edit]

Now I suggest that you mind your own business, Australian. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rangetests (talkcontribs) 16:14, 17 October 2010

This is my business. I recommend you stop vandalising, it's very annoying. And if you really want to know, I don't support any government at all. But WP:NPOV (Neutral Point of View) means that your edits are vandalism and have to be reverted. Go to Conservapedia or Liberapedia if you want. Sellyme (talk) 03:16, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Mmmm.....[edit]
