Requests about Discussions (Version 5)
  • Please use my exact username or no name at all when communicating to me or about me on Wikipedia pages. It has only ten characters and is seldom needed for clarity.
  • Please consider yourself welcome to refer to me by using one or more gender-neutral pronouns.
    • For example: I know tem. Tey said it temself (terself). This is ter idea. This is ters.
  • Please use polite language and avoid profanity. Messages containing profanity are subject to removal.
  • If I left a message on another talk page (for example, an article talk page or your user talk page) and you wish to leave a message in response, please respond where I left the message. I intend to keep all such pages on my watchlist for at least two weeks after my last message.
  • If you wish to discuss a long text which is still in its draft stage, please place a copy of it on a subpage of your userpage, and place a brief message here, with a link to the talk page of the subpage.
  • If you are starting a discussion (even a brief one of the type described in the previous point), please give some thought to choosing a brief and informative heading, unique on this page, for easy navigation.

Translation from English to Esperanto[edit]

Formerly Help with translation
Formerly Help for translate

Hello. Can you help me translate 2 paragraphs from English to Esperanto? Xaris333 (talk) 00:44, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Please post the English version on a subpage of your userpage, and provide on this page a link to that subpage. If translating it is within my abilities and interests, I will post the Esperanto version below the English version.

Thanks. eo:Uzanto:Xaris333/Salamina Xaris333 (talk) 01:00, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
I have posted my translation there. I am revising the heading of this section from Help for translate to Help with translation, in harmony with WP:TPOC, point 11 (Section headings). The new heading is in corrected English.
Wavelength (talk) 02:29, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
I have revised my translation. Also, I am revising the heading of this section again, this time from Help with translation to Translation from English to Esperanto. This new heading is clearer and more informative.

Disambiguation link notification for August 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited China Organic Valley, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gucheng County (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Comma in 'As of' template[edit]

Hi Wavelength.
Just wanted to point out that the comma you put after 2015 in the {{As of}} template here, is not needed and actually put the page in a non-existent category, 'Articles containing potentially dated statements from 2015,'. The date was already in 'US' (MDY) style. Regards, 220 of Borg 02:24, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for answering two questions.     a —> x     y —> b     a —> b
  1. This edit causes what problem? (What problem does this edit cause?)
  2. What edit causes this problem?
Answer: This edit causes this problem.
When I saw the red link to a category with an extra comma, I tried to find it in the wikicode so that I could correct it. I was not aware that my edit had affected that link.
Wavelength (talk) 16:00, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
You're probably lucky as it was me that put the 'As of' template there in the first place, so I noticed it quickly. Finding it took a bit longer. Face-smile.svg 220 of Borg 20:01, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Directory edits reverted[edit]

Formerly Hi

I noticed that you reverted my edits on the wikiproject council page and on WP:WikiProject Directory. The first one you reverted was an accident on my part so im sorry about that but WP:Directory has a link to WP:WikiProject Directory so I wanted to add a link to that page as a sort of back button. I am working on cleaning up the multiple directories and making an easier user interface for them so please dont revert my edit on the latter page if I make it again. It is nice to meet you. Tortle (talk) 02:38, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Tortle, I have seen the record of your contributions, and every edit seems to be without an edit summary. For guidance on edit summaries, please see Help:Edit summary. Also, it seems that many of your edits are test edits with little or no benefit. For guidance on test edits, please see Wikipedia:Test edit and Wikipedia:Sandbox.
Wavelength (talk) 02:53, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi again, I always forget to add edit summaries and sometimes I am in a rush to make edits quickly as to provide less disruption due to the construction so I dont add them. I redid my help edit with a length edit summary explaining my changes. And I know to use my sandbox and they arent test edits. I am simply trying to organize the directories and provide a better look. I took on this project because I was having trouble navigating and I wanted to adjust things to be more user friendly. You might think that the edits have little benefit because they are formatting and not adding content but I feel the benefit. I know what I am doing, I was on Wikipedia with a different account some years back and I still have the hang of it. Thank you, Tortle (talk) 03:06, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
I am revising the heading of this section from Hi to Directory edits reverted, in harmony with WP:TPOC, point 11 (Section headings). Please see Microcontent: How to Write Headlines, Page Titles, and Subject Lines. The new heading facilitates recognition of the topic in links and watchlists and tables of contents.

Speedy deletion nomination of Dictionary Stories[edit]

Hello Wavelength,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Dictionary Stories for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. BeowulfBrower (talk) 02:41, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Spelling of "led"[edit]

From 01:44, 21 September 2015 (UTC) to 00:13, 24 September 2015 (UTC), I corrected hundreds of misspellings of "led" (the past tense and the past participle of the verb "to lead"). I located those misspellings from the search results for the character string lead by. Here is a link to a record of 2,100 consecutive edits with the same edit summary.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

A beautiful future is offered to you and me.
  • I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, God's dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away."—Apocalypse 21:3, 4, World English Bible
  • The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely.—Apocalypse 22:17, World English Bible
Let us look hopefully to the future.

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Gender identity in the MoS". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 27 December 2015.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Hello there, are you the one who created or manage Wikipedia:Lists of popular pages by WikiProject? Pakistan is missing from there so is there any chance a list of popular Pakistan-related topics could be created. --Saqib (talk) 10:21, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

I started that page and I have made most of the revisions to it. Here is a link to its history. I do not manage the lists themselves. If you want there to be "Wikipedia:WikiProject Pakistan/Popular pages", then please visit User talk:Mr.Z-man.
