There is still some vandalism that needs sorting on this article. I'm not familiar with the article's subject though. Mjroots (talk) 18:04, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Rollback enabled on your account[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.png

Hello Ulric1313,

I have noticed that you revert quite a bit of vandalism. Since you have demonstrated that you have a good grasp of what constitutes vandalism, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you no longer want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing! J.delanoygabsadds 05:39, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

You should have had it long ago. I saw you revert vandalism on 3 or 4 pages on my watchlist, looked at your contribs, and was like "Whoa". Have fun, and keep up the good work! J.delanoygabsadds 05:58, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

mind explaining why?[edit]

If you think my edit did not improve the article, that's fine and I'm happy to discuss. Drive-by reversions without any explanation about the actual merits of the change just strikes me as quite rude and counterproductive. The guidelines WP:BOLD explicitly encourage bold improvement of an article, so simply saying the changes are too big, without actual comment on the substance of the change doesn't fly. Thanks. As to my changes, they were actually not big, and I did explain them in the edit summaries they were (1) leave the definition at an actual quote rather than the quote plus a pov paraphrase (2) integrate a one-line section into the main text (3) add another example of a spin-off (4) remove one quite pov statement (at the end of palin) that was in no way necessary to the point. Which of those do you have a problem with? Thanks. (talk) 04:28, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation, and the self-revert. Must have checked in during the wrong few second. Had been a bit put-off by the previous revert, so was not as courteous as I should have been. (talk) 04:34, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Reviewer rights[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Maedin\talk 06:29, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:09, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month.
