What is the significance adding "alleged" to "Suspected perpetrator"? The word suspected is part of the infobox template specifically for instances where the mentioned individual has not been convicted of the crime. The words suspected and alleged convey the same meaning here. Supertouch (talk) 22:58, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I just to point out that the current format: "Perpetrator: Amy Bishop (alleged)" is exactly how I had it many edits ago [1] until a user undid it. Irony... Supertouch (talk) 23:13, 16 February 2010 (UTC)


As some one who watches the SmackBot page as I have issues with it before - I don't think SmackBot made the edit you think it did - It was with this edit. Codf1977 (talk) 10:30, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

LGBT sidebar[edit]

Hello Tech12, please do not just come by and change templates that many editors use, we make changes only after discussing the change first, it's called consensus, please start a discussion on the template's talk page and see what other editors have to say about the changes you wish to make. Continued addition without discussion or consensus can get your account blocked. Cheers, - FlightTime (open channel) 11:12, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

→Hi FlightTime, I checked the talk page for the template and I did not see any discussions about changing the traditional 6 colored flag which has been used for decades to the new 8 colored one that the City of Philadelphia unveiled the other day. I checked previous edits and all of them before a few days ago included the 6 color version. What gives? Tech12 (talk) 13:51, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
