Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

who this may be a sock of? They placed an unblock template with your signature. I figured you probably blocked their sock before. --JustBerry (talk) 18:26, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Bot - Myanmar -> Burma?[edit]

Hi. Any chance the bot could replace coord missing|Myanmar with Burma? Category:Myanmar articles missing geocoordinate data has 13 members now so it's a reasonably common mistake to make. Another one, though less pressing, would be to bump any straight "New York" -> "New York (state)". TIA Le Deluge (talk) 11:04, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

PS I've just created Category:Chennai articles missing geocoordinate data if that needs to be added to a list somewhere, there's about 3000 articles in the Tamil Nadu parent category so there should be scope to knock some of them into it. Le Deluge (talk) 11:52, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Reply to Talk Page Comment[edit]

Hello The Anome! Thank you so much for taking the time to respond regarding the sadomasochism article. I am an advocate of information accessibility, so I had every intention of treading lightly. There were two activities done with my edit, only one was the warning, the other was to move the image away from page-top to prevent it being shown on a casual pop-over preview when the link is referenced on hover-over. I strongly believe the latter to be an important edit; the picture was still available lower in the article, in an appropriate section. Unfortunately after your reversion, that problem still existed. I have now moved the image into the "Historical Perspective" section on that page without any "warning" at the top of the page. LaEremita (talk) 22:21, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
