Changing letters with diacritics[edit]

There's an edit here [1] which removed letters with diacritics and turned them illegible. Celia Homeford (talk) 15:11, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Celia Homeford, that bug again, I will look again at it somewhere next week. Thanks for pointing it out to me. Dirk Beetstra T C 17:45, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
It happened again, unfortunately, Beetstra. Here's the diff: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bitter_Daisies&diff=923998758&oldid=923998549 Infoman99 (talk) 05:42, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
Infoman99, Ok, more debugging. Problem is that I do not have a way to test, I just have to wait. —Dirk Beetstra T C 06:39, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
Also here, on 16 September. Thanks,  Mr.choppers | ✎  01:15, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

bot removal[edit]

Thank you for the edits. New to a more nuanced use to Wikipedia. Because of the removal I need help reinstating the linked video and the uploaded image. Who do I need or in which forms do I need to include the criteria that makes the contributions necessary in the pages edited. Therefore, {{helpme}}

1. The rationale for the liked site in miracast is that the advertised technology was discontinued and is no longer pushed by MS in their products, but has an historical value to recount different iterations of the technology. How can I reinstate the link?

2. The uploaded image is a screenshot meant to replace the one in the entry "en cuerpo ajeno" which does not correspond to the show described by the article. Instead the one uploaded belongs to the show in question and falls under fair use though it has not been used before by Wikipedia. How can I replace the image of the entry? Lordtree2 (talk) 17:25, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Lordtree2, point 1: basically your edit looks fine, but that inline link to youtube has to go. Both sections you added need proper reliable sources, not some product link. Other articles that talk about Continuum do that properly.
Point 2 is not for here, you’ll have to take that up with the deleting admin. —Dirk Beetstra T C 17:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
