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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:47, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

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)

Thank you for this notification.—Wavelength (talk) 02:45, 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.
