Re: trailing slashes on Root URLs in Opera browser articles[edit]

I'm sorry about my removing of forward slashes from root URLs in the Opera web browser and Opera 10 articles. Mea culpa, my error. I'll remind myself not to do it again. Zollerriia63 (talk) 02:19, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Template:Css Image Crop[edit]

On 28 May 2010, you made a request to fix {{Template:Css Image Crop}}, which has been done by yours truly. —CodeHydro 22:23, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I see what you mean about the right margin. I applied a better fix, as well as a few other things as discussed in the talk page of the template. —CodeHydro 23:37, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for that, I appreciate it ;) —WOFall (talk) 02:22, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Timeline of web browsers[edit]

Hi, thanks for fixing the image. what did you change? I can't find the difference... mabdul 21:35, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it's a very subtle change. On line 444, two nodes in the path were the same. I only changed the next node to be a pixel away:
@- <path stroke="#89B" stroke-width="3px" d="M-255,0 -255,405 -255,405" marker-mid="url(#Triangle)"/>
@+ <path stroke="#89B" stroke-width="3px" d="M-255,0 -255,405 -255,406" marker-mid="url(#Triangle)"/>
I haven't read the specs, but I'd guess this is librsvg's fault. —WOFall (talk) 00:16, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Opera icon comparison.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Opera icon comparison.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:44, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

The file is indeed now orphaned and unneeded, and should be removed. —WOFall (talk) 16:35, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Luas page edits[edit]

Hi WOFall,

I corrected the luas page as the information contained on it was incorrect. Could you kindly put my changes back in? Thanks, irishalanl — Preceding unsigned comment added by Irishalanl (talkcontribs) 22:37, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

The RTÉ reference says "35-year-old Yao Webster". It's not impossible that RTÉ is wrong, but we need a credible reference before making any claim the victim was "36-year-old Fu Webster". See the reference used in the article and one more. Thanks. —WOFall (talk) 23:17, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
WOFall, the victim was my 2nd cousins wife, who is Chinese. She is also called Fu (not Yao) and is aged 36. She is an only child and has a 2 year old. I would like the article to contain the correct facts if possible. Thanks. Irishalanl (talk) 23:34, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
I sympathise with that wish. Unfortunately Wikipedia will never be 100% correct, but the referencing policy aims to keep it as correct as possible – referencing makes information verifiable. From this link: "Even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it." I suggest you contact RTÉ and other publishers, or find an appropriate supporting reference. —WOFall (talk) 00:01, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks WOFall, I will contact RTE. My one remaining concern is how can RTE sites be treated as verifiable? Where is the proof that what they post is accurate (my circumstances have already proven that they display inacurate information) (talk) 22:55, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Re: The Los Angeles Film School[edit]

WOFall, I wanted to extend my gratitude to you for assisting me in making The Los Angeles Film School a better article. Per my COI, I will continue to only make suggestions to the Talk Page should it need them. If I ever need your assistance with the article, would it be OK for me to reach out to you for review? Thank you again. --Tylergarner (talk) 17:29, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

No problem, glad to have been of help. Of course you are also welcome to ping me in future. —WOFall (talk) 17:33, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Dragon Quest and stuff[edit]

It's entirely beside the point, so I'll put it here. Apology accepted for the "repeated accusations" thing, and I should in turn like to apologize for making it seem like I was accusing you of making repeated accusations. What I initially meant was that I made one off-hand comparison between DQ and Slump's relative popularity, I was then asked (not by you) to alter the wording and replace Slump with whatever I believed was more well known (something I had never proposed), I then clarified my meaning and specified that I wanted the article to specify his single most popular work, not replace Slump with something else.

Then when you later made what looked like a similar argument, I said that I was annoyed by the repeated strawmen. I did not mean to imply that you had repeated the same strawman argument more than once, merely that you had perhaps missed my earlier reply where I specified that I wasn't trying to put DQ in where Slump had been.

As for strawmen, I should specify that the other strawmen that (I feel) have been repeatedly used against my edit are Americocentrism and using raw Google searches as sources. Americocentrism was mentioned twice by ProKro based on some my edit's other proponents using this argument -- even though I'm the only one in the dispute who has yet cited a source from Toriyama's home country. Raw Google hits were mentioned twice by Farix, based on both my initial actual linking to a raw search, when (as I have already said) I assumed my edit would not be reverted (I only posted to the talk page because the URLs wouldn't fit in the edit summary), my later using GBooks to count the relative number of print works that mention Slump without mentioning DB and vice versa, and my using Google's "search within site" tool to locate every instance of Toriyama's name on the websites of large Japanese newspapers. If Farix does not speak Japanese, then I can see how these actions might appear to him like using raw Google hits as sources (are you getting why I want people to be transparent about their Japanese ability?). But the fact is that so far "you are using raw Google hits!" is the closest anyone has come to even acknowledging that I have provided any evidence at all.
