Sorry about the warning[edit]

Sorry about the erroneous warning I left you. I removed it and redid the edit I accidentally undid. I happened to press Q in Huggle around the same time you edited, and something got screwed up. Happy vandal fighting! DavidWS (talk) 20:28, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Your rollback request[edit]

Hello Sionus, I have granted your account rollback in accordance with your request. Please remember that rollback should be used to revert vandalism, and that misuse of the tool, either by reverting good-faith edits or reverting-warring with other users, can lead to its removal. For practice, you may wish to see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback. Good luck. Acalamari 21:51, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Why was my edit considered "unconstructive"? I was merely making the article more accurate. Best regards, --96.241.162.6 (talk) 01:31, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi! Could you comment on the talk page as to why you feel the material that the IP was removing should be allowed to stay. Thanks, THEN WHO WAS PHONE? (talk) 00:03, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Just did. I'd agree that it is unreliable after looking closer at it. Sionus [talk] 00:05, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

One question - how come the page is marked as "in dispute"? The data that is currently posted isn't in dispute, correct? Jeff99999 (talk) 00:14, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

The page still is under dispute as to whether or not the additional information is valid. I agree and others agree that it needs citations and reliability before being added but the contributor of that content clearly doesn't. If the conversation about that content dies off just remove the mark. Sionus [talk] 05:39, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

need some help with abuse[edit]

Sionus how can you report abuse? PeeJay2K3 has been very rued to me and I would like to report him. How can I do that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.47.101.83 (talk) 21:41, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

He's not an admin, just a user. What does that mean? Does that mean don't bother with loners like him or what? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.47.101.83 (talk) 21:49, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

he has blocked me from his talk page just to annoy and provoke me. what should I do?

all right thanks! you are the 1st decent person I have met on here. Good luck on making this website a lot better! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.47.101.83 (talk) 21:55, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

The first decent person he's met on here? Yeah, he told me that once too. Look how that turned out ;) – PeeJay 21:58, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

thanks mate. much appricated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.47.101.83 (talk) 21:58, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Djzapz[edit]

Hey Sionus, I edited the Argumentum ad populum page where you advance that Islam is believed by the most people. In fact, Christianity is the most 'popular' religion. I cited a source this time, directly pulled from Christianity/Demographics. Peace! 7:21, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok. My edits were reverts due to vandalism. Sionus [talk] 16:31, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

What I wrote was fact, I see nothing wrong with it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.102.9.122 (talk) 15:32, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

It wasn't fact, it was personal opinion and vandalism. Of which I see you've made again recently. Sionus [talk] 17:56, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: You should look at edits before you revert them[edit]

Sorry, I mistook that as him changing "do" to "don't". Thanks for letting me know though, so I can take the warning off his page. Much obliged Inferno, Lord of Penguins 23:13, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Looks like the user was indef blocked for vandalism anyways, however. Inferno, Lord of Penguins 23:16, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre[edit]

Information.png Hi Sionus! There appears to be a discrepancy between the information in The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre article which you have contributed to or edited. The November 2008 Ofsted report and the article may not be referring to the same schools. Moreover, in an article about Heathfield School, Wolverley it is claimed that it merged with Bewdley. However, a website exists for a Heathfield school in Wolverly about an independent school on which there exists very little verifiable online information. There is clearly some confusion concerning these two schools and their affiliation. If you can help with these issues please see Talk:The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre, improve the article if you can, and leave any comments there.--Kudpung (talk) 17:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Huggle 3[edit]

Hey Sionus! I am Petrb, one of core developers of Huggle, the antivandalism tool, which you are beta testing (according to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members#Beta_testers). I am happy to announce that Huggle 3 is ready for some testing. You can read more about it at WP:Huggle/Huggle3_Beta. Please keep in mind that this is a development version and it is not ready for regular use. That means you must:

  • Watch your contribs - when anything happens you didn't want, fix it and report a bug
  • Frequently checkout source code and build latest version, we change it a lot

If you find any problem with a feature that is supposed to work perfectly, please let us know. Some features are not ready yet, it is listed in known problems on Huggle3 beta page, you don't need to report these - we know it! So, that's it. Have fun testing and please let us know about any problems, either using bugzilla @ http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/ or #huggle connect. Please respond to my talk page, I am not going to watch your talk page. Thank you Petrb (talk) 10:57, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Huggle 3 beta is out - and we need more feedback![edit]

Hey Sionus, how are you? I am Petrb, one of huggle developers, and you are currently subscribed as a beta tester of huggle on meta (meta:Huggle/Members. You may not have noticed, but this week I released first beta precompiled installers for ubuntu and microsoft windows! Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3_Beta has all the links you need. So if you can, please download it, test it and report all bugs that is really what we need now. Don't forgot that as it's just a beta it's unstable and there are some known issues. Be carefull! Thank you for helping us with huggle Petrb (talk) 16:25, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Recent revert U.S. Languages[edit]

Hello, Sionus. I'm not an expert editor but I do love Wikipedia and was starting to fix some crazy claim about 30% of Americans speaking Spanish. Then I noted you had recently undone an edit trying to fix the same problem. Could you please have a look and let me know what you suggest be done? What was wrong with that earlier improvement? Maybe the whole idea of putting a percentage is redundant and just came up as a mistake for the number of millions, i.e. "more than 30". Anyway, the updated census citation at least worked, though it gave little added information. I think we still need to replace the earlier, bad citation, anyway. Thanks, - phi 21:27, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

We need your help testing latest huggle[edit]

Hello,

I am sending you this message because you listed yourself on meta:Huggle/Members as a beta tester. We desperately need attention of testers, because since we resolved all release blockers, we are ready to release first official version of huggle 3! Before that happens, it would be nice if you could test it so that we can make sure there are no issues with it. You can download it packaged for your operating system (see Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3_Beta) or you can of course build it yourself, see https://github.com/huggle/huggle3-qt-lx for that. Don't forget to use always latest version, there is no auto-update message for beta versions!

Should you find any issue, please report it to wikimedia bugzilla, that is a central place for huggle bugs, where we look at them. That is i mportant, if you find a bug and won't report it, we can't fix it. Thank you for your work on this, if you have any questions, please send me a message on my talk page, I won't be looking for responses here. Thanks, Petrb (talk) 15:17, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

New huggle 3.1 is going to be released soon[edit]

Hi Sionus, we are to release a new major version of huggle, but we did receive almost no feedback from our beta testing team, which you are a part of (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members). It would be of a great help if you could download it (if you have windows, all you need to do is getting http://tools.wmflabs.org/huggle/files/huggle3.1.0beta.exe and putting it to a folder where you have installed huggle) and test it. You can always get a help with making it @ #huggle connect!

Major changes:

  • Multisite support - you can now log in to unlimited number of wikis in 1 huggle session and get a huge queue of all edits made to these wikis. This is good for smaller projects which gets overlooked often.
  • Ranged diffs - you can select multiple revisions and get a huge diff that display all changes done to them.
  • Fixes of most of bug reports we had so far

In case you found a bug, please report it to bugzilla: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/buglist.cgi?product=Huggle&list_id=147663 thank you! Petrb (talk) 10:14, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Huggle message[edit]

Hey Sionus! You are receiving this message because you are subscribed at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members#Beta_testers

I have recently launched a new downloads for beta testers that contains nightly builds of huggle, eg. versions that are built every day from our master branch and contains latest huggle. These builds are currently provided only for Windows and Ubuntu. You can find them here: http://huggle.wmflabs.org/builds/

Please keep in mind that these don't have any automatic updates and if you download and start using nightly build, you will need to update it yourself! So don't get yourself to running old version, it's possible to install both stable and nightly huggle, which is what I suggest.

Keep the bug reports coming to phabricator: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/create/?projects=Huggle Many thanks! Petrb (talk) 10:02, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
