September 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Lime kiln with this edit do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Calabe1992 (talk) 20:06, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

The addition of the external link was unintended, and for that I apologize. I thought that I had left the page intact. I was trying to edit the page, but, unfortunately, I kept getting an error message: "Problem reloading page." So I saved the content to a word document so that I could try later. I have now successfully restored the page with my changes. Shin 19:15, 30 September 2011

November 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Danger High voltage! 04:29, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up the Ryukyu Islands article. It needed that. Hope we can get you to sign on as a registered editor! Student7 (talk) 21:26, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Close vs. Closed[edit]

Before you continue to make edits like this, I recommend you get agreement from other editors. The best place would be Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Linguistics. I've undone your edit, partly because of the issue of community agreement and partly because it messed up the appearance of the article. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 01:38, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to History of silk may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s and 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • the Han Dynasty|Silk]] was a common offering by the emperor to these tribes in exchange for peace]].
  • Following the example of the wealthy Italian city-states of the era, such as ([[Venice]], [[Florence]], and [[Lucca]], which had become the center of the luxury-textile industry,

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 15:19, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Brackets[edit]

Hi Shinju: You appear to have got a bit confused. If you look again at the messages from BracketBot above, you'll see that the bot tells you how many problems it has seen in the page, and then shows you where they are by putting in red the bracket or parenthesis that is unpaired. [[ and ]] make an internal wikilink in wiki-syntax, while [ and ] make an external link, so one should not be corrected to the other unless the wrong one was actually used. I hope that explanation helps - it's kind of hard to put into words :-) Yngvadottir (talk) 19:23, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

History of Silk[edit]

Hi Shinju, I just reverted your edits on History of silk - it looks as if you were trying to fix the automated message left in October. Links to other articles on Wikipedia do need to have a pair of square brackets, so you'd been left an automated message in October about the edit you did then. Another one immediately above my note was triggered by your attempt to fix things. Please just ignore both messages as we have fixed the article. Face-smile.svg If you ever have any questions, please don't be afraid to ask; someone will always try to help! SagaciousPhil - Chat 19:36, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Tyrian purple, disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Read read WP:ENGVAR before making more spelling changes. VMS Mosaic (talk) 12:07, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Indiscriminate reversion[edit]

Okay, I get the issue with the varieties of English, but when I spend over an hour editing, why is it necessary to revert every change? For example, how is the article improved by reverting to the following redundancy?

"At right is the colour called "Tyrian purple" that is used in web site design. This colour matches the colour of the Tyrian purple cloak worn by Justinian I as depicted in mosaics in the 6th century Basilica of San Vitale, shown in the image of Justinian I depicted above."

My edit of "color" is corrected to "colour":

"At right is the colour called "Tyrian purple" that is used in website design. This colour matches the Tyrian purple of the cloak worn by Justinian I as depicted in mosaics in the 6th century Basilica of San Vitale (shown above)."

Likewise with "The name, "Tyrian plum" . . ." to "The colour name "Tyrian plum" . . .".

First, do you really believe that people will not know that purple is a color if we don't tell them? Second, what is the difference between "shown in the image" and "depicted"? I simply removed the redundancy and the awkwardness. To revert all of my edits without discernment is to treat me as a vandal. If this indiscriminate treatment continues, then I'll take the issue to the administrators. Shinju (talk) 10:15, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

fixing piped links[edit]

Dear Shinju,

When people do things that don't make sense to me, I ask them why. Often I learn something new I didn't know before, and I hope that will happen in this case.

Recently in the sprue (manufacturing) article you changed many links to piped links (Help:Link#Piped link), including

  • [[dowel]] to [[Dowel|dowel]]
  • [[dross]] to [[Dross|dross]]
  • [[injection molding]] to [[Injection molding|injection molding]]

etc.

When I read that article normally on screen or on paper, both versions appear to be pixel-for-pixel exactly the same. Also, when I click on any one of those links, both versions take me to the same destination page.

As far as I can tell, it doesn't make any difference, so why would anyone make such changes?

I'm hoping I will learn something new today. Perhaps there is a really good reason to do that. What is that reason?

p.s.: Have you heard of the WP:NOTBROKEN guideline? It says "Introducing unnecessary invisible text makes the article more difficult to read in page source form." At first glance it appears to me that you have added unnecessary invisible text to the source of the "sprue (manufacturing)" article. Why? Am I missing something that is more obvious to you than it is to me? --DavidCary (talk) 15:51, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
