This is your Talk page where you can receive messages from other Wikipedians and discuss things with them. At the end of your messages you must put your signature by signing with four ~~~~ (just as I have done) or by pressing the button in the editor bar as shown here in the picture. By the way, you don't need to sign edits that you make in the articles themselves as those messages will be deleted. Another valuable page that may provide information and assistance is User:Persian Poet Gal/"How-To" Guide to Wikipedia. My name is Buster7. If you have any questions or face any initial hurdles, feel free to contact me on my talk page and I will do what I can to assist or give you guidance and contact information. Good Luck editing!

Merge articles on Human interface device and USB human interface device class?[edit]

What do you think about encouraging some individual or group to merge the articles on Human interface device and USB human interface device class -- or at least make it clear why there should be 2 articles with each referencing the other appropriately?

I think the title of the merged article should be "Human interface device", but it should be clear that HID is a standard and secondarily devices that comply with that standard. I say this, because I recently purchased a television with USB ports that supposedly accept input from a USB HID keyboard. It failed to work with 2 different USB keyboards I have, apparently because they are not HID. I hadn't heard of HID before, and I think it would be reckless for me to attempt this.

Thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia DavidMCEddy (talk) 18:04, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I have no strong objections to a merge, but I'm not 100% sure it's necessarily the best idea either. If we decide on a merge, I think Human interface device should have a section specifically titled "USB human interface device class." I'd have to think about it a bit more. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 18:30, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Track ballast may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"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:
  • , or less formally, "stoneblowing"<ref>Ellis 2006, ''Pneumatic Ballast Injection'', p. 265.</ref>). However, this technique is not as effective with fresh ballast, as the smaller stones tend to

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 22:24, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Fixed the original issue. TODO: Figure out where/how I should be archiving such warnings. Also, did I read this quickly enough to avoid getting an email? If not the case, what could I do? --SoledadKabocha (talk) 22:30, 16 November 2013 (UTC) (+ 00:08, 17 November 2013 (UTC))

1987 Chase Maryland collision[edit]

The use of British rail terms to describe an accident in the United States isn't proper. "Signal Passed at Danger" isn't even a term used on American railroads. We don't operate on UK railroad rule books. I invite you to go search the NTSB report for this incident as well as mediation cases from the National Mediation Board. They all quote the rule violations not terms from another country. Ksryengr (talk) 17:44, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm not aware of this issue occurring with any other article. As I said, my impression as a reader was that Wikipedia uses the terminology more broadly. I feel this needs wider discussion at the talk page of a WikiProject or Manual of Style page, but I wasn't able to find the right one on a quick glance (at the time of my original post).
By that logic, would all the non-British entries in Signal passed at danger#Accidents involving SPADs need to be removed, or at least have their articles edited not to mention the term?
Or should the Signal passed at danger article not imply that the terminology is exclusively British?
And even if it's not the proper terminology for the crash in question, would a piped link be appropriate, to express that it's the closest concept that has a Wikipedia article? (I don't think we have articles on individual sections of the US rulebook, especially where the same concepts have other existing names.) --SoledadKabocha (talk) 18:31, 27 September 2015 (UTC) (+ 02:11, 28 September 2015 (UTC))
I should have looked at the banner on Talk:1987 Maryland train collision instead of searching blindly; the WikiProject is WP:WikiProject Trains. (I had mistakenly thought it would be called something like "Rail transport.")
One last thing: What geographically-neutral term would you use to describe the general concept of a "signal passed at danger"? --SoledadKabocha (talk) 02:11, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Unnecessary disambiguation category[edit]

OK, I accept that. 1 (year) is an convincing example. (I see from the category talk page that I'm not alone in being puzzled. It is the value-laden word 'unnecessary' that threw me].

I confess that I still don't really see the purpose of the category. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 15:19, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
