Trick-or-treating[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that you've edited the Trick-or-treating article recently. There's been a debate running for the last few days over the title of this article. Your input would be appreciated! — Smjg (talk) 16:16, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Mass suicides in 1945 Nazi Germany[edit]

What about what I wrote do you consider vandalism? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.115.166.5 (talk) 02:44, 27 January 2014 (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) 15:18, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

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

Hi ToBeFree, 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) 10:15, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Huggle message[edit]

Hey ToBeFree! 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) 10:03, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Your Repeated Accusations of Vandalism to Other Members[edit]

Unfortunately your automatic script must have flagged my edit as nonconstructive and vandalism, as no logical human would have interpreted it as such. Neither of which was my intention, and since your talk page has another member bringing this topic up, I urge you to consider making more fruitful, more manual edits to WikiPedia. I simply issued a image that I took into the public domain and embedded it into the article, which added context to the page. I doubt you'd even read this, but I guess this is why WikiPedia's active userbase has declined so much in recent years. Courtneymorris95 (talk) 16:47, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

I am not using any script to detect/flag unconstructive edits automatically, but I use Twinkle to revert such edits and to notify the affected users of my actions. There is no reason to replace freely licensed images (CC: BY 3.0!) with public domain images just because of their license. Actually, if both images are freely licensed, it seems to be very unconstructive to replace a well-suited image with a less useful image. If you even happen to be the creator of the less useful images, this looks to me as if you want to see your images in as many articles as possible, regardless whether this is a good choice or not. This is why I have manually, logically, reverted your change and used Twinkle to inform you about my action. :) ~ ToBeFree (talk) 20:55, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
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.
